hellow, im newbie here..
is there any stingray fans here? cmon show me your ray /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

lets talk about ray, sharing, helping, show off your ray, etc2 here!!

let me start first.

i start keeping stingray since june 07, my first ray was a pair of 18" motoro, and 3 months later i;ve got 3 pups from them /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> and since then i really2 addicted to stingray, but since in my country other ray is very2 expensive. so the only ray i can buy just motoro.

but now, i've got 10 motoro and 1 flower ray. and hopefully in this month will added 2 flower ray, 2 castexi, and 16 histryx

enough talking, now its time to show off

Are they all from one female stinger? /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" /> Must be heart-breaking when you see the still-borns.

Hi i have two retic rays{originally had four hence my username /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> }lost one to unknown cause! and had to move on one because they were fighting well trying to mate /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" /> They are all males! As to your question dunc about what happened to that ray,it looks like 'bite' marks to me as that looks very similar to what mine had,hence why i had to rehome the poor fella! If not treated quickly can lead to death,but with the right treatment and good water they will heal surprisingly quickly!!
Hi Stinger some amazing rays there /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> Good to have another 'ray' fan on here /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

That's a nice wee retic. /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" /> Females quite often get those bite marks during spawning right?

Hi yes found out the hard way /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" /> ,but at least the ray survived and has been rehomed /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> The remaining two rays are getting along fine - but the dominant ray is growing noticibly faster than its companion!! But big changes on the horizen so watch this space /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Wow stunning animal stinger. /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" /> I seem to remember Tom ordering these in a couple of times and them not arriving. Are they any more difficult to keep than Potos?

thanks matt, i've got this antenna from peru, i ordered 2 antenna and 2 china ray, but only this one survived.

until now the antena just eat 4-5 ghost shrimp a day, but its getting better /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
the only problem i've got with all of this rays, sometimes the new born motoro pups wont eat at all until they die.. and until now i still dont know what is the problem..
