Freshwater Stingray Info for Fish Aquariums
Setup and Care Instructions:
Aquarium size: (for one stingray) 50 to 100 gallons
Aquarium bottom: Soft (i.e. sand) substrate. No sharp objects (gravel, rocks, sharp decorations, etc.) that may cut the stingray, allowing bacteria to enter or infection to develop.
Water Quality guides: 1.5 pounds of regular solar salt per 50 gallons water, 3 pounds of solar salt per 100 gallons. This will help to control the bacteria content of the water. Water quality is very important in the survival of your freshwater stingray.
Filters: Use a biological filter (or change the 1/3 of the water every day!) Contact us, or search the internet, if you need more information about biological filters.
Diet: Carnivore (Freshwater shrimp, snails, feeder fish, krill and other meaty foods). NOTE: The stingray may eat other aquarium fish that fit in it’s mouth.
Size of Adult: Disc size 12″ to 14″, length approximately 20″ to 26″ inches long. (Shipped size is approximately 6 ” to 7 “)
Water Temperature: 60-80 degrees F.
Safety: The Dasyatis Sabina Stingray, like other stingrays, did have a sharp, dangerous spine that could cause injury. We remove this spine prior to shipping all stingrays. However, this spine will grow back. Click on Spine Removal for more information.
