The Haller’s Stingray is sometimes referred to in the form of the California Stingray. It is a bottom-dwelling fish with brown bodies as well as yellow marks. The tail spine contains venom that is used to protect. Be cautious when you are netting it or if it isn’t visible, and maintenance is being performed within the tank.

The Haller’s Stingray prefers cooler temperatures of water and should be only maintained by an experienced enthusiast. It requires a 180-gallon tank that has water temperatures between 75 and 68 degrees. The aquarium must be at least two-foot-wide from the front to the back for an adult. It is fond of covering itself on the substrate with soft material to act as camouflage. A harder substrate could scratch the abdomen and create an infection. It should not be exposed to medications containing copper. It can devour any crustacean or fish within the tank.

The process of feeding can be difficult at the beginning. When the fish is first introduced to the aquarium, tiny pieces of squid that have been cleaned as well as live shrimp from the saltwater feeder must be used to lure this fish to consume. It can then be fed scallops, shrimp, or even pieces of freshly caught marine fish.

The approximate size of your Stingray is measured by the size of the fish.

Approximate size of the purchase: Small: 3′ to 4″ Medium: 4″ to 7″ Large: 7″ to 10″
