reticulated teacup stingrays need a tank of at least 150 gallons with a fine sand bottom because they bury themselves in the sand. round tanks are preferred. 6-7 ph is ideal temperature 78-82 degrees they are carnivores and will eat shrimp, bloodworms, earthworms, crickets etc. i want one so bad ive been looking into them for a while now

My LFS sells teacups for 100 dollars.

I'd say at least 200 gallons regardless of any type you get. But I've never kept them just from what I've read and heard
