Fw stingray

Hey,

I'm thinking about getting a FW stingray. What are your thoughts or expertise on these creatures...They seem really kewl but i guess you really cant house much in the tank with them. I've had little luck find water parameters and food selection also compatibilty with a FW stingray. I'm teetering the Idea if you have any experience please let me know...

No experience, but I have seen them properly housed at one of our lfs ... They keep them in indoor pond with a sand bottom. According to them, you need a huge tank or a pond.

they are illegal in a few states. depending on what species you get will dictate what size tank you need. though general they need very large tanks.
