question on sting ray

i got a sting ray today and is acting pretty cool but if a sting ray could stand on its tippy toes thats what he looks like he is doing when he sits still. so i asked the guy at the shop and he said with this crushed coral i would be ok i thought you had to have sand bottom but he said no not neseseraly. so i went ahead and bought it. but like i said it seems to me he dont like the the bottom of the tank. any advice or someone who has had one be glad to listen and any ideas.

Stingray will be ok in crushcoral but it would better if its soft sand.
Norm they would prefer to cover/hide themselve below thin layer of sand.

I also concern your ray will cut itself when it try to cover itself with the coral.

Oh...... that must have set you back a pretty penny. You don't seem to upset about it pardon my saying.

Nice! Well that takes the edge off the loss, even though it was a beautiful fish. I hope that you have better luck with the angle and the gobby. I love the flame angels, and wish that I had a tank big enough for one.
