 Hi  Friends,  
 
 Just  wanted  to  know  if  I  use  a  stem  of  Cabamba  as  flaoting  plant  ?  Will  the  plant  do  well  or  will  it  die  back  ?
 
 Will  the  broken  leaves  that  float  around,  decay  and  harm  the  balance  of  the  tank  ?  
 
 Kindly  guide  me...
 
 Thanks  and  Regards
 
 Kush

 Cabomba  requires  high  light  and  cooler  temperature.  You  also  need  to  change  part  of  your  tank  water  on  ragular  baisis.  You  can  keep  cabomba  in  floating  conditions  provided  you  fulfill  its  requirement.
 
 Yes  decaying  leaves  will  not   harm  provided  you  have  a  good  and  functional  biological  filtration  system.  Decaying  leaves  will  increase  the  detrius  load  in  your  filters  and  at  the  same  time  will  increase  the  nutrients  level  in  water  as  well  as  in  substrate.  So  you  need  to  clean  your  filters  and  substrate  at  regular  interval.
 
 If  kept  properly,  floating  cabomba  can  flower  at  the  surface  also.
 
 Rgds

 IME  decaying  leaves  cause  algae.  I  have  been  able  to  reduce  upto  80%  of  algae  in  my  tanks  by  removing  free  floating  and  damaged  leaves  before  they  decay.

 Cabomba  is  not  excatley  a  floating  plant,  although  it  may  survive  and  even  grow  floating.
 But  more  often  than  not  the  leaves  start  breaking  up  and  foul  up  the  filter  inlets.
 although  it  is  one  of  the  cheapest  and  most  easily  available  ,  but  it  is  not  the  easiest  to  keep.
 Fish  love  to  swim  through  it  and  medium  size  fish  can  cause  the  leaves  to  break.

 Floating  cobamba  with  good  light  and  CO2  will  give  you  a  stringy  jungle  of  floating  cobamba.  Ive  had  it.
