When I say huge sand bed I mean the footprint, not the depth. I do not think crushed coral is ideal for rays.

"Bluespotted Ribbontail Ray (3) (aka the Bluespotted Stingray in the pet-fish trade). Indo-West Pacific, including the Red Sea. To fourteen inches in width. A commonly offered species in the ornamental marine interest, but rarely lives... due to shipping trauma, being kept in too-small quarters, lack of oxygen, scratches and subsequent infections."

SW Rays art Blunderall
"Some fishes should be avoided as tank mates for Rays. Not because they are a potential meal for the Ray, but because they will potentially prey on the Ray! Triggerfishes, Eels, and even large Angelfishes can pick on Rays and nibble on their long fleshy tails. This harassment and damage can lead to the death of the ray. Along those same lines invertebrates with large claws (i.e. some lobsters) are also to be avoided."

had a freshwater one. keep an eye on the tankmates.

Rays tend to get stressed easily.

they are pretty cool though, used to hand feed mine and he was so active, swimming up on the glass all the time.

They also stir up the sand bed quite a bit... Be prepared for sand storms.

such a cool fish tho,

Just don't get barbed... Hurts like a mofo, speaking from experience.
