Default Help me ID this please?

Hey! Newbie to the art, here and just planted a nano. I picked up the plants at my LFS, got some HM and Xmas moss. also this pair of stem plants that were labeled "Ton Lago." I googled it (grievously short of books at the moment) and came up with nothing, so I'm asking for some trained eyes, here. Thanks if you know it, thanks if you don't. Either way, it's a pretty little plant.

It looks like a some sort Tonina sp. to me. A Tonina sp. "Lago" perhaps?

Tonina 'Lago Grande'.
It is an uncommon and demanding plant. I'm going to take a wild guess and say you live in either Portland or San Fransisco?

Across the river in Vancouver, actually I picked this up at The Wet Spot yesterday. How demanding? Right now I have it in a 2.5 gal nano with AMA Amazonia, a 26W full spectrum CF with CO2. Is there anywhere I can read up on this? Thanks for the quick reply, guys!
