Did a quick google search and they appear to be freshwater but capable of brackish.

Dasyatis sabina?

This stingray is euryhaline and can maintain adequate physiological functions at varying degrees of salinity. Stingrays found in the St. Johns River system, Florida, represent the only permanent fresh water population of an elasmobranch in North America.

Versatile fish this one. Going to be tight in a 120 though

I think it would depend on the collection sight. Yes it is a versatile fish, but if you get a couple that originally came from brackish water, they would have a harder time transitioning to freshwater than if you had ones caught IN freshwater. So if possible, when you purchase your fish, see if you can find out where they were captured.
