What stingray is ok in a smaller tank?

Are Cortez or bluespotted ribbontails better in a smaller tank? What size tank does each of them need?

A cortez would be fine in a 150 for the majority of their life like 5-6 years out of their 7-8 life span as long as you have good water circulation,GREAT filtration and copperless water also keep the stock other than the ray down to very few fish,i suggest a clown pair and like 3 blue chromis also you'll need a very strong cuc so make sure ur tank is running with everything but the ray for over 2 months so they wont be small enough to be eaten and also keep replacing cuc members once in a while they will be occasionally eatin and good luck~ps:blue spotted rays are a little bigger and a little more active then the cortez i have seen a few years old cortez ray in a 90g and the smallest ive ever seen work for a blue spotted was 135g round but it only was less than a year before it died and round tanks are better for tangs so again good luck!
