    How long does it tank a stingray to grow to about 10inches round?? From like 4 inches?? Just trying to understand if stingrays grow fast or not, I would think it prob like allot of fish where some grow fast and some dont.

    My ray is due in 15-30 days to have her first batch.

    Right now she is in a 210 with a few smaller geos and some koi that are growing out for my pond. I don't believe the koi or the geos will hurt the pups. There is a sandbed, but its clean and the tank overall is clean.

    A couple of questions...

    How long should I keep the mom in with the pups before separating? Also, I feed pellets to all my fish...will the pups be able to handle small pellets or should I get some blood worms, black worms, etc? I figure if the mom is good with pellets, the pups should go after them as well.

    Hi guys,
    I'm a true novice when it comes to Rays but my pair of motoro's recently gave birth to 3 healthy pups 2fm/1m. I already had the mum separated from the male due to biting on her back(she's fully recovered now) I didn't remove pups from the tank just put a crate divider down one end but hit a problem with any food I put in would soon disappear through the filtration.I decided to move them into a large floating laundrybasket style (flat base with large holes all round)acrylic tank inside the main tank .It's been 6 days since birth and still not eating bloodworm(frozen/live)shrimp.One of them is starting to show stress through bellowing up and down.I did read somewhere that if the parents are very young (mine are only 11 months old) there's a chance that first borns haven't developed fully physically or maybe hormone deficient. They look like perfect minatures of the parents. Any inputs to what I might be doing wrong would be great to hear.
    Kind regards Glen(Sydney/OZ)

    Marble Motoro, I've had the female going on two years this August.

    NLS pellets and Hikari Massivore and Gold (whatever the red sinking one is) - that's pretty much all my fish eat. Every now and then they get tilapia when it's onsale at the grocery store. Pellets are so easy, theres a ton of threads on this site that explain how to get your rays on pellets. It's really not hard. I've gotten all my rays on pellets within a month of having them.

    Also, I finally have a pup! Thread:
