How are they doing now? Are they rooted or floating? A good (regular) fert program and some substrate ferts (if they are rooted) will help. Do you know what sort they are?

Do you have any specific problems? Both Cabomba and Elodea are fairly easy plants to keep, you shouldn't have to do anything more than give them 8-10 hours of light a day and they should flourish to be honest. Pehaps some liquid ferts once every week/two weeks depending on how heavily planted you are.

I've used Dennerle A1 NPK daily for a couple of tanks - just a squirt a day and away you go. To be honest most are ok. Dupla and tropica both do good ferts that i've used before. API do some as well, not used them but they get good reviews.

Have a look in your LFS - see what they've got and let us know.
