I have to tell you... I've been using this 95 gallon aquarium for a little while now and things are going great! I currently have two clown fish, a small (about 1.5 inch) blue tang, a large (5-6 inch) naso tang, a cardinal fish, a firefish, a baby (about .5 inches) dwarf lionfish and... my favorite... a small (about 4 inches) stingray! The stingray was the last to go in a couple weeks ago. Everyone is getting along great, eating well, and are very active... I'm absolutely loving it!

Now... I know what you're all probably thinking... the stingray will outgrow the tank and the lionfish will probably get hungry for some of his friends when he gets a little bigger. No need to fear, I've done my research. It will probably be a couple years before either of these two get large enough to outgrow the tank or cause any problems. Since this tank has been going so incredibly well, I have every intention of getting an additional larger tank by that point.

I've come across pictures of David Saxby's aquarium online and I must say, I'm completely envious! I hope to keep taking small steps towards that 1,200 gallon (3,700 if you include the whole system) monster and maybe get to where he is some day.

Thanks for all of the support so far!

If you are speaking of Urobatis halleri, which is likely, I hope you realize they need a chilled aquarium of around 62F +/-.

That's correct, although according to information I have found all over the internet, he does best in 72-78 degree water. The fish store I bought it from keeps their water at 72 and I keep my tank at 76. He has been in there for a couple weeks and seems to be doing fine. He's eating great and frequently seen swimming happily around the aquarium. Doesn't seem like he minds the warmth to me...

I'd seriously consider doing a bit more research on that. Might want to look over at wetwebmedia if you haven't already.
