Purple Cabomba is a beautiful perennial plant with a vast surface area. It's perfect for shrimp tanks, nano tanks, and/or community tanks. 

The Purple Cabomba's feathery-like leaves create an ideal grazing surface for shrimp, and provide hiding space for younger fish fry. 


Cabomba is relatively easy to care for, requires medium light, anf prefers to be dozed with fertilizer, though can live without it. Cabomba are more delicate, and can fall prey to snails or plecos if they are not properly fed. However, we've found that feeding KatsAquatics calcium prevents snails from resorting to eating your precious aquarium plants. 


You will recieve 4-6 stems in the order. The stems may be clippings, or the mother plant.
