You posted this in saltwater, are you sure you don't mean freshwater?

They need a lot more than a 100g tank. Even the freshwater species. They get 18"long with tail. You can get them at an LFS even though they shouldnt carry them because of their high mortality rate.

The D. sabina ( Atlantic) and the U. jamacansis (yellow) are both small saltwater sting rays found in the atlantic and caribbean with a maximum disc width of 14 inches (35cm). Females are larger than males. Need sandy bottom and large aquariums. Love stingrays. Can be very personable.
