my motoro stingrays
well, I've always been fascinated by rays and got this pair early in the new year and they have acclimated well. eating shrimp and bloodworms twice a day. researched them for awhile and finally got the chance to own a pair. figured it was time to show them off....
lots of extra work, but well worth it IMO. they have really bulked up and grown in the few months I have had them so far. the male has more spots and is a bit smaller than the female.
as always, sorry about my crappy photoskills and dirty glass...

Nice looking rays Crispy
There's a guy I know here in town that keeps (and breeds) these rays. I seen his tanks a few time and they sure are fascinating to watch.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Nice rays! How big is the tank?I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
