Default Can anyone ID this plant

Hi,

I'm new to this site and was hoping someone could ID a plant for me, I bought some recently and am really pleased with it, but cannot find any info on it. I have been told it is a new species? (not the cryptocoryne by the way!)

Thanks!

Didn't you go back to the other forum and look at the responses there?

It looks like a Tonina sp. and I was interested in a trade but I see you are in the UK so I'll give up that idea.

Great! someone I spoke to suggested a name sounding like Tonina, so I think I have found it! (I have spent so long on the net looking for this species!) Thanks for all your help- That little lot cost me about 7.50 ($13.50) for the 10 bunches, I order aquarium plants for an aquatic company I work for, so I really wanted to find out the name of that species to order more!

Thanks again

Sean - I have Tonina sp. Belem. It didn't like the move and but is
on the path to recovering. I'll give you some when I have some to spare.

Which Tonina did you already give me, the one with the compact whorls and short leaves. Oh, would you go speak up on the thread about your weekend of rock hounding already.

I gave you Tonina fluvatilis. I've got Tonina sp. Belem too - I think
it's much prettier. I'm going to get another Tonina species from
another guy - maybe he'll come to the Sat meeting.

The rocks..the rocks...you'll see on Sat

My Toninas grow green leaves, but they start to wither away after the leaves can't grow any longer. This has been happening for weeks now. So it basically looks like a palm tree where the top is always green and the everything below that is brown. Any ideas what's going on? My friend and I believe it could be the tap water we use for water changes. So it needs pure soft water? I have a ph of 6.8....soo....ne ideas and solutions?

thanks

Sounds like a deficiency where the new leaves are pulling
nutrients from the old leaves in order to grow. Can you describe
or even better yet show us the old leaves?
