hello, i love stingrays and want to add one to my tank if possible. (permantly). I will have a 65 gallon mixed reef. Are there any small stingrays that could live there? Also i read somewhere that freshwater stingrays can live in saltwater tanks, though i highly doubt that it is true. I would appreciate any confiration and anwsers. Thanks!

No, you cannot put any kind of elasmobranch in a 65 gallon tank. You could try some spotted rays in a 300 gallon rubbermaid, or some kind of kiddie pool, with a jump guard. It wouldn't be super aesthetically pleasing, but is the most economical option and gives adequate space.

what about the california round stingrays? They grow 3-9 inches long and need a 70 gallon aquarium
