  • GH Level: Aim for a general hardness (GH) level ranging from 5 to 15 dGH for their optimal health.
  • KH Level: Keep the carbonate hardness (KH) within the range of 2 to 10 dKH for their well-being.

Feeding: Freshwater Stingrays are carnivorous predators, and they require a diet rich in protein to stay healthy and active. Offer them high-quality frozen or live foods, such as bloodworms, shrimp, fish, and even small crustaceans to satisfy their dietary needs.

Tank Mates: Due to their size and specific care requirements, Freshwater Stingrays are best suited for species-only setups or large, well-maintained aquariums with other large, non-aggressive fish that won’t stress or harm them.

Sexing: Sexing Freshwater Stingrays can be challenging, and it often requires examination of their pelvic fins and other subtle physical differences.

General Information: Freshwater Stingrays have adapted to a benthic lifestyle, spending much of their time gliding gracefully along the aquarium floor. Their unique shape and behavior make them a true marvel to observe.

A Fun Fact: Freshwater Stingrays possess specialized electroreceptors called ampullae of Lorenzini, which enable them to detect the electrical signals of prey and navigate their surroundings with remarkable precision.

Welcome these extraordinary creatures into your aquarium and witness the elegance and mystique of Freshwater Stingrays.
