Just in case I'm looking for a bigger tank, I found a 180 gallon fiberglass tank(60"x30"x24") that I might get in the future. Because stingrays always been a interest of mine since I was a kid, are there any species that could fit in this footprint? If not, what is the smallest ray and footprint for it/tank size?

Scobina, hystrix and mini marbles could work. Need good filtration.

What would be the cheapest stingray? And what would be a good filtration for a tank this size, sump, fx4, other options so I can estimate the cost of the tank+filtration+heating?

These smaller ones are hard to get by are availabe in the mfk marketplace. Can’t say on price but I’d imagine more expensive as not readily available. Would look into a sump and not use a fx6 or it’d be an addition to the sump.
