This stem plant requires at least moderately soft water in order for it to thrive; a GH of about 5 or less should be adequate.

Tonina fluviatilis makes many special demands on the hobbyist, making it unsuitable for beginners. This stem plant requires at least moderately soft water in order for it to thrive; a GH of about 5 or less should be adequate. The substrate material should be acidic , although a mature Eco-complete or Flourite substrate with a peat under layer will suffice. Lighting should be intense . CO2 injection is a necessity for this plant to thrive as well. Surprisingly, T. fluviatilis is not all too fussy about water column fertilization other than ample additions of iron/micronutrients. However. do not let nitrate and phosphate levels reach zero.

T. fluviatilis grows vertically even under very intense light, setting out the occasional side shoot along the length of the stem. Because of its moderate growth rate, it can be smothered by more competitive, faster growing stem plants; make sure that it does not get shaded. When this plant grows too tall, simply top and replant the more robust top portions. Replant only the top two inches of each stem for best results, as starting with trimmings that are too tall will result in the lower portions becoming rooty and ratty. Shorter trimmings will grow out into cleaner, healthier looking stalks.This Tonina species is an excellent green accent plant in the mid ground to background of an aquascape because of its unique, fresh green foliage. It would be an excellent candidate for a Dutch style tank, because of its moderate growth rate, very vertical growth habit, and adjustable height.
