Any reference I've seen says Cambomba isn't demanding of soft or acidic

Mine does fine in both my tanks, both have pretty high hardness.  One
has a pH around 7.2 - 7.4, the other has a lower pH, around 6.8.

Cabomba ok in both.  What problems are you having with it?  I doubt any
problems are caused by the pH/hardness (although 14 dH is pretty high!)
