FW stingray question

Okay I'm really curious as to purchasing another stingray, mainly bc on my next purchase i get $60 off .

So in my LFS they have the stingrays(teacup) in a discus show tank with discus, angels, cories, etc.

My question is, would a stingray be okay to put into my 180G tank with these smaller fish, I have other threads posted about what I have stocked but just incase you haven't seen it, I have

15 rummynose tetras
6 red phantom tetras
3 Cory paleatus
2 Cory aggizzi(spelling wrong)
1 rubber nose pleco
1 bristlenose pleco
1 zebra botia
3 assassin snails

My main question is, would the stingray eat these guys even tho the LFS has em stocked together in a show tank??

I would have to say no because plecos are not a good thing to keep with them. If they attach to the stingray it wont abbey a good thing for the stingray.

I really don't know to be honest. I have never kept one but have always wanted too so ive done a lot of research. I don't know if I would worry so much about the stingray eating the others. I would be more worryed about the plecos and others nipping at him.

Really?? You wouldn't worry at all about my cories getting eaten?? Lol that's the first thing I thought of, at first yeah the ray would probably be too small but once it grew, I would think it'd be a concern

If it grew would be the question. I would be more worried of its safety before that. Out of all research ive done says you need near perfect water at all times and you have to be very careful what you put with it. I'm not saying it wont grow if it does the only thing that would probably makebot would be the pleco imo
