I have a small California Sting Ray and he is one of the greatest fish in my tank. He will swim up to my hands when it is feeding time and will lay upside down onto the palm of my hand and let me feed him. He is such a great addition to my tank. Very Friendly and constantly swimming. They are very fun and bring a lot of attention to the tank.

Sorry to bother you, but what else do you have in your tank.... so I know what is compatible with it.
I saw your post from sometime ago and have a small ray for about 2 weeks now. Today he has a long jelly strand coming from his butt... I'm worried and can't find any information. Have you ever seen this?
To the guy who is on his second one you have to have a sand bottom they get small scratches from crushed coral which get infected also they need to be able to cover themselves in it to hide without this they have a lot more stress. look up California spotted sting ray proper housing on google and you can see this is said by a lot of reliable sources.
I just got a california stingray, it is very active. I also have a snowflake eel in the same tank and he doesn't pick with the stingray at all. They follow each other around the tank.
I just got a California stingray. It is the greatest animal I have ever kept. I found it was a good idea to get a couple of snails that bury in the sand. These help to stop unwanted bacteria from growing in the sand and they eat any food waste that would deteriate the water quality. One thing, I cannot find good info about other fish that can be kept with her. I would be interested if anyone has any info on this subject.
I have a california stingray. it has not eaten any of my very small fish it, is very active in swimming, and i have not had any problems with it at all. i found it a very nice addition to my aquariums.
Caught and released a California stingray today off of the Redondo Beach Pier. Released it back into the water.
Rays seem cool. I want to get one (probably the California Stingray), but other than this site, I can't find ANY info about caring for them. Should I really consider a pet like this?
California rays have great personalities, Once it gets used you he will act just like a puppy.Mine loves to be petted between his eyes.I just wiggle my fingers in the water and he comes to me.
They can easily be tamed to hand feed and great companions
