One day !
Dad on the left.
Do you think I can get away with it telling my wife that I am bringing home some pups?
Buy the wife a pup Ged, hey get one for yourself too.
Thanks Ged, the little cute face of stingray pups is pretty hard to say no to. My other half doesn't even like me selling them.
But, does she like shiny things? hahah.
I know who to hit up when I get my dream tank underway...
She is a female, they all love shiny things, like magpies!
very nice colour and markings , what size tank are the parents in
Well done Alex,quite a few this time.Still haven't got any replacements to the ones I lost but might be soon.Cheers Glen
very nice mate
Thanks mate. The parents are in a 8x3x2.5
Should get back into it. I lost one of my females, appears that one of the pups became stuck when she was giving birth, bit sad but you get that. I'm moving away from TB's getting more into tangs. So I may need your help with some stocking.
What are the preferred water parameters for keeping rays??
I use straight dechlorinated tap water. The trick is consistency. I don't mess around with things like pH.
The trick is laziness. Careful Alex - people gonna catch on!
It's an absolute pup factory!
I'm not sure why anyone would mess around with chemicals when it isn't needed. If the rays are being kept in an acidic environment slowly get them used to your tap water. Makes water changes easier (especially large scale ones), cheaper and removes any human error when mixing chems.
makes sense! Its obviously working!
That tank would be great for feather fins!
Bring back the descampsi as well Alex!
But agree with everyone, awesome rays
How much do you have to feed the parents Alex? Also, are all those pups from one litter or multiple?

I have something huge that is going to be unveiled later this year. Going to be something special, stay tuned.
Feed them heaps, hard to say exactly how much. Mainly hikari carnivore and chopped up frozen foods (whitebait, squid and fish fillets.
Mate - have you seen a recent 'River Monsters' episode where the bloke teases a little motoro in to stabbing a leg of beef?
Unreal. They are incredibly precise with their stabbing, I always assumed they would just flail around and be lucky to catch something.
Is it weird though that it made me want them more?
Great show River Monsters but that episode in particular.
