Both require extremly large tanks with extra ordinary surface area. Both are surface level swimmers that need as long and as wide a surface as possible. Both get large (for aquarium inhabtants). Stingrays need a sandy substrate to bury themselves in.

I stronly avocate not keeping these two species.

Sorry i missed this discussion for i wasn't here, but the ray you selected not grows as large and the shark will in time enough get a chunk out of it. And with that, the California Stingray prefers cooler water temperatures. As well, you will need a large tank just for the shark alone once grown to an adult.
