Tonia fluviatilis is widespread in may parts of South America. Light
green to yellow in colour, its characteristic leaf form makes it a pleasing
contrast to more ordinary plants in the aquarium. It is a demanding plant for
experienced aquarium owners, however. Tonia fluviatilis is most beautiful
planted in small groups, and should not be allowed to develop a bushy habit. If
the shoots grow too long, they can be pinched off and planted on the bottom to
form new plants.
