    So I just got my first ray, its a 5" reticulated female. So far she has not been very active, just hiding in the sand. Is this normal?

    What size tank? How did you acclimate? What are your parameters?

    The tank is a 150,
    I left the ray in the bag for a good half hour and release her near the bottom.
    All the parameters are good.
    Is this normal for low activity? It seems like at night she is much more active

    Well she might not make it, rays are very hard to adjust to water, a correct way to acclimate them would have a drip acclimation or float the bag and take water out and put some in.

    Im sorry.I must have misread your profile.It says they are in a 125.Either way,it is quite normal for a ray to be shy when added to a new tank.

    yeah i need to change that, at first I thought I bought a 125, later to find out its actually a 150... but either way, this is normal for rays to hide for the first little bit?
