Thread: Teacup Stingray

    I just put 2 teacup rays in a 35 gallon long with nothing else in the tank besides a few live plants. Ive gotten so many mixed reveiws of what size tank to put them in and frankly i dont have the room for a 125 gallon tank and really wanted stingrays. So I will keep you folks posted on how it turns out. So far in the first hour a fed them a little to calm them down after the traumatic experience they had (I got into a car accident on the way home with them) And they seem fine.

    I didn't even know they had freshwater stingrays until about a month ago. I've never seen any in a LFS in AR.

    Everyones freaking out because you can pet a stingray in a pool? They cut the stingers off of them every year, or however fast they grow back. They wouldn't put them and sharks in a tank for the public to get hurt.

    I would like to have a teacup stingray though...

    Since rays don't need much vertical space for swimming I've heard that ultra large terrarium tanks are ideal for teacup rays. They are really long and wide, but not very deep. I'm not sure what the gallonage on the tanks is but I've seen them as large as 6 feet square and about 2.5 feet deep.

    A 55 would work fine.
    As long as you plan to upgrade within the year.
    If the rays tail touches one side and his head touches the other when turning around the tank is too small.

    I have my two teacup rays in a 75g. 52x24x16. So when they get mature i will have to upgrade or get rid of them. Wich is gunna be heart breaking.

    Teacups or "reticulated" stingrays are harder to keep alive for a starter ray. It would be worth starting with a Motoro Stingray as they are hardier and easier to care for. they do however grow bigger than reticulated and really 120 gallons (or much more) imo is a must for any ray since they are so sensative to water quality.
