Comments
Freshwater Stingray species are illegal to own or sell in the state of California and most other states. So we have never kept or sold any Stingrays. It was my intention to discuss on this web site only those fish species that I had kept and knew about from my first hand experiences. But many folks are interested in Stingrays, so I've gathered some information on this page.
   
 
 
   
Pet Fish Talk, an MP3 PodCast, is a weekly internet talk show about keeping pet fish, such as Tropical Fish and goldfish, in aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds. The shows were hosted by the Bailey Brothers, DrTom and Nevin, Click on this image for more information.

Spotted Stingrays, like the one shown just below, are hardy, active, and easy to keep in the proper aquarium. But they have a poisonous stinger on their tails, and there is a substantial probability that they could become established and reproduce in our native water. So most states in the United States ban them.

 
 
Stingray for sale at AquariumFish.net, Tropical Fish stores.   Here's a rear end view of a Spotted Stingray, where you can see its back covered with orange spots that are ringed in brown. Spotted Stingrays are livebearers.

Stingrays will eat Ghost Shrimp and larger shrimp sold in supermarkets for human consumption. You should remove the shrimps shells. Stingrays also eat angleworms and pieces of fish. Click here for more about feeding fish.

     

Compatibility
Since we have not kept Stingrays in our aquariums, we don't feel qualified to discuss compatibility. there is more information about keeping Stingrays with Arowanas and Clown Loaches at the first link list below. Click here to read more about several other groups of compatible fish.

     

Size and Lifespan
Freshwater Spotted Stingrays can grow to be 18". Their lifespan is unknown to us.

 
 

Customer Comments

 
Do you sell Polka Dot Stingrays and if you do, what are the chances of getting a male and female, 3 to 4 in diameter.

Reply. Hello Paul. Our facility is in San Diego, California, and it is illegal to import, to own, or to sell Stingrays in California. So we don't have any Stingrays in our facility to sell you.

This page contains some information about Stingrays and is included in this web site for your entertainment, even though we cannot import and sell Stingrays.

I see you are in Canada. We cannot ship to Canada, and we do not foresee shipping to Canada in the future. Click here to read where in the U.S. we do ship.
 
If our answers to your questions disappoint you, we apologize.
