    So as I have been talking about, in a month or so I will be setting up a 120g. I'm going to have 2 Freshwater Florida Atlantic Stingrays. Only Stingrays Native to the USA. Can I have 6 Mystery Snails with the stingrays or its not recommended? I will have no other fish in the tank.

    The snails won't hurt the rays and they are cheap enough to try. I don't think the rays would go after them. Might be wrong there but worth a shot.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    If I'm spending $250 on 2 Rays, I can spend $18 on 6 Snails to try them out.

    those rays are not truly freshwater and are VERY hard to keep. they are also larger and need more room than most rays. why not start out keeping reticulated or motoro rays?

    and I'm not sure about snails, I don't have any in my ray tank, but they do love to eat the small tetras from time to time. since they are always foraging for food, I would think your snails would disappear slowly.

    I heard Florida Atlantic Stingrays are easy. Also they will only grow 2 feet and usually no more the 1 1/2 feet.
