Tonina Fluviatilis is a beautiful aquarium stem plant that works exceptionally well for decorative pops of character in a planted tank. Tonina is within the same family as Eriocaulon and is known for being finicky in aquarium settings. Like other species of Tonina, this is not a beginner’s plant. It requires moderately soft water, with a mildly acidic substrate. The species needs a lot of light and CO2 injection. A good supply of iron and micronutrients is important, and the nitrate and phosphate levels must never be allowed to fall to zero.
