And honestly, what is a ray gonna do that cichlids havent?
I came across this statement in an old post (sited in a new one), and had to grin, what can a ray do that a cichlid can't. I've been bitten by plenty of cichlids, and by the next day, its forgotten.
The juvie stingrays barb went all the way to the bone, and look almost 2 months to stop aching. Then there's that Steve Irwin guy.

Can somebody explain why they're illegal in California? Like...I'm only knowledgeable about the Bay Area, but the water here doesn't seem like it would suit a motoro at all in the wild. I can understand the ban on degus, hamsters, ferrets, and gerbils given that it's an arid climate...but at the same time, it's an arid climate. Also...again, arid climate, and a drought...

Here in Switzerland we have to go trough an exam and after we need a permission from the local veterinary office. And to get this you need to show your Tank and go trough an assessment from a expert.

complicated but it was totally worth it :grinyes:
