How long until it's set up and occupied? We scope out the rays every time we're at the store.

Well the reason its in the garage and not in the basement is that I am at sheetrock stage in the basement and just getting that done and then ill build a stand and set it all up, So it will take a little while but I hope to get it filled as fast as possible, as for actually getting stingrays in the tank that could take a little longer but I have enough other stuff to go in the tank till then, My Peacock bass need to go somewhere and keep growing

That looks pretty sweet! Totally jealous. Would love to have a tank that size. What do the rays eat? I know just about nothing when it comes to them.

I feed shrimp, talapia, massivore pellets, nls pellets, night crawlers- super expensive so not really anymore. On average I feed 1/2 pound of shrimp and some pellets to the tank everyday once a day. About 50.00 each month worth of food. They are as expensive as everyone says they are.

Yeah that is exactly what I've heard. The food cost is up there. It's live food for the most part right?

No live food at all, I buy my frozen shrimp from the Asian market where its cheapest, frozen talapia filet from Walmart freezer, pellets from Kens fish foods.
