Yeah, I think that tag must have gotten switched, because it definitely looks like a Spathiphyllum (peace lily). And it can be grown as a riparium plant.

This is what it should look like if it was what the tag said: http://www.hawaiinursery.com/catalog...&listingID=146

Joy to the fishes!

The tag is wrong. That's no Euphorbia.

But it is a peace lily (Spathiphyllum), so it should grow real well as a riparium plant.

I'm not sure what that one is. But you can always try it and see. It looks like it might have a couple different crowns; you could see about separating one of the smaller ones and try it in your riparium.
