pH Range: 6.0-7.5
Special Requirements: A soft sandy substrate is required. The ideal tank is long and wide as depth is not as much of an issue as footprint size. The tank should be very well filtered and mature. Any décor should be very secure to avoid being toppled, and should not get in the way of the Ray.
