Hello ... My plants até growing great, but my myrio is not growing bushy... They are growing Very spindly... with two or three inches between each leaves Section.

My tank is CO2 injected and have two white led lights... One BLUE and one pink.

I really want my myrio to get bushy. Any ideias?

If the myrio is new to your tank (less then a month or 2 old) then I'd say its old growth is dying off and to watch how the new growth is coming in. If it still is growing like that or its been 1 or 2 months, then I would say your light is not good for the plant. Purple type lights are not great for aquarium plants. You will want to try getting a light in the 4000 to 7000k range and at least 30 ppfd/par at substrate. You will also want to make sure that the myrio is not being shaded by other plants.
