Hi all,
After waiting 4weeks for this pup ray ready,
Finally can pick it up from LFS

Spent 1 hour slowly dripping to acclimate and settle this guy down to my aquarium. Seem ok with no stress or curl disc..
What you think think about this ray?? Looks healthy???and what everyone think this is a motoro x Mantilla ??
New to stingray and need some opinion.
I will not feed today as this guy just into the tank and should I try to feed from tomorrow

Thanks every opinion

Never kept rays or know much about them but this little guy is beautiful. Again I’m not good with rays but to me it looks like a pure motoro ray. Also with rays one thing I do know to look out for us if the dots start to drip down then that’s a bad sign. What are you going to be feeding?

From my experience it looks like a motoro, I could be wrong as there are so many hybrid rays nowadays. Looks healthy with possibly a little slimecoat coming off, but it should do well for now

Slime coat coming off?? It should be getting better when this guy settlendown in weeks
Any point need to be watch out when keeping ray
I know clean water is the key...

Don’t keep two male rays together, and since It’s a pup feed it twice a day, but once is also fine

Looks pure motoro to me. Expect some pretty solid growth. Meaty foods and pellets as a staple try to discontinue bloodworms for more nutritionally packed foods.
