The Blue Spotted Stingray is commonly referred to as the blue-spotted fantail rays, blue spotted stingrays, blue spotted rays, and ribbontail stingrays. With large bright blue spots on an oval, elongated disc and blue side-stripes along its tail, it makes an eye-catchy specimen in the tank. The Blue Spotted Stingray features rounded snout and the mouth on the underside of the body, along with the gills that is perfect for scooping up the animals hiding in the sand. It should be fed with chunks of meat and diet that includes krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. The Blue Spotted Stingray is an aggressive fish and is found mostly feeding on corals, worms, shrimp, hermit crabs and small bony fishes, that is why it is not considered safe for a reef tank. It is a bottom-dwelling fish and requires a thick sand bed in the tank. The Blue Spotted Stingray should be kept in a tank not less than 150 gallon along with many soft substrates. It likes to cover itself with the soft substrates as camouflage. The Blue Spotted Stingray eats any invertebrates in the tank once it is established itself in the tank. It features a poisonous tail spine that is used for protection. The Blue Spotted Stingray should never be exposed to copper-based medications and caution should be taken when netting. The small pieces of cleaned squid or live feeder shrimp should be used initially to entice this fish to eat. Since it lacks hardiness, it should only be kept by experienced hobbyists. The Blue Spotted Stingray thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4.
