How about when it lives? ,its been in a 55 gal tank for six months a 125 will be allot better i would think ,how about the info i posted above that states needs to be in a tank 75 or bigger-how about it states that getting it to eat is the harest
If this is a tank raised ray and is eating good I cant see the problem

How about IF it lives.


Would you rather listen to people on here (who I know some of them have tons of knowledge in everything saltwater, like Hara) or an online store that just wants your sale?

allot of nagativity here ,the post above states getting them to eat is the trick ,this one has been in a 55 gal for six months and eats like a pig ,the post above states 75gal or bigger, i have a 125 ,can't see the problem ,this ray hand feeds and is doing fine
Memeory refresher
Minimum Tank Length/Size:
A minimum 75 gallon aquarium is recommended

Maintenance difficulty:
The Blue Spotted Stingray or Blue-spotted Ribbontail Ray is fairly easy to keep once it is feeding on it's own. .

Fairly easy compared to clownfish.

Rays need deep sandbeds, lots of room, good water conditions, etc, etc, etc. Mostly which just zoos have.

Like I said if you have the budget to do it right, try it.

Just dont be surprised if it doesnt make it.

Send a message via Yahoo to Hara
from wetwebmedia.com:

eniura lymna (Forsskal 1775), the Bluespotted Ribbontail Ray (3) (aka the Bluespotted Stingray in the pet-fish trade). Indo-West Pacific, including the Red Sea. To fourteen inches in width. A commonly offered species in the ornamental marine interest, but rarely lives... due to shipping trauma, being kept in too-small quarters, lack of oxygen, scratches and subsequent infections... An aquarium and Red Sea specimen shown.

Please note the part about being kept in too-small quarters. Just because one has lived (for awhile) in a too small place, does nto mean it SHOULD live like that. Note also the 14 inch WIDTH of the fish and tell me you have enough room for it to bury itself in the sand.

Yep, like I said...

If you have the budget to keep it (Large aquarium is the main cost, next is filtration, etc) go for it.

Oh, I also think the infection is a big one too....

You arent suppsoed to keep anything sharp around, and only supposed to keep soft sand.
