Assuming you mean the leaves fell off the cabomba, it is probably due to lack of adequate light and/or nutrients. Cabomba is a stem plant, which means it grows as a single stem that produces leaves and small roots all along it, as opposed to a rooted plant which would have a group of leaves arising from the root system at the crown, similar to common houseplants. Stem plants grow very fast, and therefore require nutrients and light greater than most of the rooted plants. I have never had good luck with cabomba, because I don't have enough light (and if I were to provide more light, CO2 would be needed, and I'm not going to fuss with that).
