Cabomba turning reddish
Recently I went to PetSmart (even though I hate that store) because I was looking for cabomba and Sailfin doesn't have any. Well its in my tank now for a week and a half and its growing pretty fast. When I got it, it was dark green. Now that its growing, the tips are reddish-purply-pink. Thats the best description I can think of for the color. I have pretty high light (130 watts of 6700K PC) over my 37 gallon. Does cabomba caroliniana (I think its caroliniana) normally do this? My rotala rotundifolia is doing the exact same thing. Where there's new growth, theres reddish-purply-pink leaves.
