The Fiddler Stingray is a delicate species and should only be kept by an experienced hobbyist. To provide an adequate habitat, a 500 gallon aquarium that is at least three feet wide is necessary to house an adult. In addition, the aquarium should feature a soft substrate that the Stingray can use as camouflage. As a precaution, a coarser substrate should be avoided as it may scratch the Stingray’s abdomen and lead to an infection. Furthermore, copper-based medications should not be used in the aquarium as the Stingray is sensitive to this chemical. Lastly, the Stingray will feed on any crustacean or mollusk that is present in the aquarium.
This fish can be a great addition to any saltwater aquarium, and with the right feeding regimen it can be quite healthy. It is important to provide a variety of foods to encourage good health and coloration. Live, frozen, and freeze-dried foods should all be offered to ensure a balanced diet. Additionally, it is important to ensure that you are providing a variety of proteins to keep them healthy and active. With the proper care and diet, this fish can be a beautiful and long-lasting addition to your tank.
The approximate purchase size of your Stingray is about 2 feet.
