Maximum Standard Length
A large female can measure 24″/60cm across the disc. Males tend to be smaller. An adult or pair will need a tank measuring at least 96″ x 36″ x 30″/240cm x 90cm x 75cm/1700 litres.
Strictly speaking, decor isn’t really necessary in a tank set up to house rays. You can however add some large chunks of bogwood, beech branches or smooth rocks if you wish. Ensure that any such furnishings are too heavy to be moved around or secured to the tank in some way, and that there is as much open swimming space as possible.
Dim lighting is preferable, although once settled in most rays will also be active under brighter conditions. Plants that require rooting in the substrate will be eaten, but you could try species that can be attached to items of decor, such as Java fern or Anubias spp. Even these may not survive the rays’ attention though.
