a lover of banded bamboo sharks - u should never feed goldfish since they dont have enough protein for the shark. Sharks dont like bright lights instead they like low lights. there is a special temp u must keep them at.

Brown Banded Bamboo Sharks DO have a sexual difference. ALL male sharks have "claspers" and the females do not. Also, this shark does best with a specific gravity of around.024. I have found that the temp. should be somewhere between 75 and 78 degrees. I have kept this shark for a few years, and it has done VERY well.

I have had mine for 3 weeks now. The first night he ate 4 of my Chromis, the next night 2, then 1. I am left with only one in the tank now. This one is smart enough to hide at night behind a rock where the Ray cannnot get him. When the lights go off this is when the Ray goes on the hunt. He swims looking for pray and will corner them and eat them. He also chews on rock in the aquariumn. I drop the food to him and when he sees it he jumps on it and eats it. Their sight must be limited because the food can float down next to him and he wont see it, he moves around until he almost rools over it then he grabs it. I have fine sand and he kicks it up constantly thus causing cloudiness and sand all in my filter system. I feel I must go to gravel or get rid of him and keep the sand.

Please leave the Blue spotted sting rays in their NATURAL
habitat. Have compassion and respect for marine life and
don't keep them captive. Thank you. Pilar

Bamboo sharks should be kept at a salinity level of 1.024-1.025 ideally. They should be fed to saturation 3-4 times per week to reduce loss of other fish and to knock down on the overfeeding problem that will eventually get you into trouble with a large specimen! They do very well in an undecorated tank and will feed better at night. Juveniles can go up to 2 weeks without feeding when 1st introduced into a system, feed live foods if it lasts longer than that. Temperature should be kept at 76-78 degrees as an average. Make sure you have no "metallics" in your tank as these things have been proven to actually drive the shark crazy. They are very intelligent and a wonderful pet if cared for correctly.

I'v got my blue dot stingray in a 125gal. With the rocks on both sides of the tank. I think a 125gal would be able to house them for life. They dont get over 15in wide. The blue spot stingray is hard to care for but if its eating so far so good...
