Need full name and info on this plant

I recently bought 5 stems of this plant on Aquabid the (RARE) Tonina sp. from BelemR

They arrived in great shape and are brilliant green and very healthy looking. I would like more info on this plant if known please.

Lots of very experienced growers are cursing that plant as hard to keep, so it should grow great for you, much their collective consternation. Apparently it could be from a high altitude headwater area of the Amazon. It may like soft water and bright light, but every plant that doesn't take right to our tanks supposedly likes soft water and bright light. Keep track of your conditions and post back to us how you do with it.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
