The top half is still green but the leaves are yellow. It might not have liked the move though so maybe it's melting?

Well here is an update. The plant is still alive but looks similar still. The top is bushier now and what looks like roots are coming out all over it. I've enclosed a pic for any other comments or opinions. Also I've decided to save forum space, I'm going to make this my random cabomba questions thread. Lol

First, my heathy cabomba is getting too tall. Do I cut it in the middle and replant next to its other half? I've heard it likes to be clumped together.

Also, one of the stems I can see has started growing another little stem next to it. Is that a baby plant? Lol idk how cabomba reproduces so just wondering.

And darn it! Since removing the bladderwort, I've developed brown hair algae on my tallest cabombas but no where else. I've cut back light time to 7.5hrs a day and plan on only adding ferts once a week. Will this help? Any advice greatly appreciated as this stuff is ugly. I keep taking it out but it comes back each day.

I think that's all for now lol oh and here's the pic...

I've decided if the algae gets worse I will try using Flourish Excel. Any input?

It looks like the hair algae doesn't like water changes. I took out as much as I could and did a 50% change. I'd usually have to take more out in the morning but today I didn't have to. I'm winning? Lol and I'll leave the cabomba alone for now, but I'm pretty sure I have enough healthy pieces already
