WATER QUALITY REQUIREMENT
Stingray is very sensitive to bad water quality, and unstable water parameter. Before buying a stingray please check your water parameter such as temperature and pH fluctuation to avoid your stingray sick and die because of the temperature differences between day time and night time, OR low pH. The range of the best temperature is 28-30 C, while pH can be maintain at pH 6.0 – 7.5.
TANK AND FILTRATION
Filtration is the most important aspects of a ray tank set-up. A large and efficient biological filter is needed to cope with the amounts of biological waste produced by an active, predatory fish of this size. Combinations with probiotic will help to maintain the water quality. Lightning can use LED light, in the bright condition the fish will be more active. Minimum size of tank to raise ray is 4 x 2 x 2 feet but since the ray will grow in 6-9 months need to change to bigger tank, the key to keep your ray healthy is the bigger your tank and filtration is the better.
Arowanas, Oscar, Peacock Bass, Datnoid and other fishes that is bigger than the stingray or else the stingray will the fish smaller than it. DONT PUT any bottom scavenger fishes to avoid the stingray being wouded by bottom scavenger fishes such as sucker catfish. American red tail fin or fei fong ONLY can be put if the tank is big enough and have enough food or else Fei fong will eat the protective mucus and caused stingray get wounded and had the secondary bacteria infections
