if I may, what was your first ray? and what size was he? im interested in getting one
I sort of started off at the higher end of rays back in the 90s before everyone had internet so hard to get much info on them
I started off with leopoldi which was £125 which was a lot of money back them
Looking back the leopoldi grow to big for the 6x2x2 I kept it in

A very small ray is scobina but they are very hard to find

Marble motoro stay fairly small but make sure it's a real marble as normal motoro can grow to 36" disk

Rays are not hard to take care of as long as you buy a healthy ray that's feeding well

Captive bred rays do 100 x better than wild caught
 
 
That's awesome, I am in the process of building a 237 gallon tank. It will be my first large tank and I would live to see some unique fish in there and rays were the first on my mind.

T1K, I would first like to ask how is your health that is the most important thing?

Now onto the fish, Ive just finished reading the whole of this thread from page 1 - 49 and its been so fun to read and watch the videos.

Such an amazing thing you have created and you must be pleased with yourself.

I have got to say my Mrs was slightly gutted when we found out you had to sell the turtle lol

Please keep up the good work and keep this thread going! I am looking forward to seeing your tank and fish in the fish keeping magazine.


Thanks
Jamie

Can't help but love seeing tinfoil barbs kept in a proper tank.  Wish this picture was next to their tank at the LFS.

Yes it's cost a bit to run

In the summer with no heaters on it cost about £30 per week now buy the time you add other things in like food and other bits to run the tank is probably £55-£60 per week
