The blue spotted stingray is a great pet to keep. I keep mine with a large zebra eel, a lion fish, and a snow flake eel. Very graceful swimmer, likes to eat squid and shellfish etc, keeps the bottom of the tank clean, filters the coral sand keeping it very clean, and it is easy to keep as well.

I am a shark lover. i love sharks and the black banded shark is very picky when it comes to eating when you first get it. i love how it swims, like a baby jaws. they are lazy as a baby they just eat sleep and play at night. its a good shark and i cant wait till it grows larger. i have 3 60 gallon pumps for it and my salt level and temp is perfect.

Caught and released a California stingray today off of the Redondo Beach Pier. Released it back into the water.

I just recently purchased my blue spotted stingray about four days ago. It is beautiful and very active. The first night though my clown trigger attacked his barb, so I decided the trigger had to go. I was also informed after purchase that he needed a sandy bottom. All I have is crushed coral in a 150 gal, so I got some sand. The tank is now a clouded mess everytime he flaps. He can get under the shell, so I think I''ll leave it.In a few months I'm purchasing a 260 gal. The ray is housed with a clown, lionfish, foxface, puffer, naso tang , and two green bird wrasses, and formosa wrasse. All is peaceful minus clown trigger. Had thoughts of returning ray, but think I'll take my chances. Is interested in eating. So far he is worth the headaches.

I have successfully hatched a banded cat shark and was the healthiest fish in my tank. After 2 months he died due to a lionfish sting. These fish are very fragil creatures and need soft sand and near to perfect water quality. I do think a 125gal could house it for some years. Watch what kind of fish you put in the tank with the shark, some may pick at the fins. My trigger never touched him. I recommend people to buy the shark in a egg.

i have a pretty young brown banded bamboo shark and he is great. Since i am only 15 years old, "Chip" is a great pet and conversation piece. He does swim at night and sleeps during the day. I have found that when you feed squid, the tentacles tend to fall off and are hard to find, which will ruin your water quality. I now feed him scallops, which he LOVES, and since they are straight meat, my water quality is a lot better. Scallops can be expensive, so any type of fish or marine animal that wont fall apart is fine. Depending on the depth of your pocket book, a bigger aquarium will be much better for the shark, and will also allow them to get larger. I find it good to hand feed my shark, which makes him friendly and not aggressive. "Chip" lets me pet him, and he especially likes it when i rub his gills, much like a dog behind the ears. As the shark gets bigger, it is better to not have as much decoration on the aquarium floor. since Bamboo sharks swim and sleep on the bottem, it is better to let them have the room.
