    my Cabomba caroliniana is dying =[.
    the tops are going brown, and all the little shoots off the main stem are going brown. anything i can do to save it? or should i just start over?
    it is odd as about a week ago it was growing very well. and looking exceptionally healthy. not sure what has changed.

    Well how big is the lights and how big is the tank? If their is not enough nutrients then it will die. Ha. Nitrates could be consumed to fast. not leaving enough for the plant to thrive and survive.

    my two favorites in my life.

    well light comes in through my windows during the day, and i have a light which spans the length of the aquarium inside the hood. not sure which globe it has in it though, as the previous owner supplied it.

    it says that it doesn't like frequent replanting. and just before it started dying i found it floating (filter must have blown it loose form the gravel). after i replanted it happened once more about 2 hours later. reckon that could be the cause?
