awesome! i should have added, what size tank to plz
When it comes to rays its not all about the gallons. Its about the footprint. Id rather put an ray in a tank thats say 100x100x54cm then 150x60x60cm. Its the same amount of water but better footprint in the first tank. So when setting up an tank for an ray go with as large footprint you can get in where you want to place it.

I'm not a ray guy but I notice most or all ray keepers do not have a sand bottom. Sometimes they have a little. Do rays like sand? I know ocean rays like to partially bury themselves. Sorry to interject on this thread but just wondering.

Its easier to keep the tanks clean without sand. I used to have sand in my growout tank but then i got tired of vacuuming the sand so i took it all out and now im starting to get some nice brownalgae on the bottom instead :headbang2
