Default Leggy Cabomba

My Cabomba plants are are starting to grow very "Leggy", that is the
branches are getting furthur apart making the plant look a lot less
bushy.

Sorry, but that the best way I can explain it...

=================================
Cabomba needs INTENSE light. I personally have never seen it grow well in
an aquarium that didn't have the light intensity of a reef tank.

Too much red light. Add a blueish or daylight tube.

Red caues long leggy growth, blue causes more compact
growth.
