Pictures/video!?

I was watching Tanked on animal planet the other day. In the US they have so many different seawater rays in the aquarium trade. Absolutely stunning - they have rays similar to eagle rays that glide through the water like birds.

Only a quick video. Don't want people getting to jealous. Hehe. Plus you can't be to careful these days. Look what happened to poor old Robert. These guys are under heavy lock and key with a couple of pitty c staffs on guard when I'm not home wink.gif

He just wants out of that basket! Not for a while et though.

Video taken from this morning when I woke up and went to check on him.

It will stay in there until it is a bit bigger and it can compete for food with the other fish.

As I said in earlier post. I have been taking the advice/help of someone very experienced in keeping these fish. So I will be listen to what they say very careful for the first stage of his life. I would hate for such a beautiful fish to get injured or even die.

I already want a female. Best fish I have EVER purchased!

This little guys going great!

Started giving him some blood worms along with his earthworm today.

I woke up one morning to find him cruising round the bottom of the tank loving life. He must have slipped up and over the handle. I have since raised the basket. Nothing was bothering him. But I will wait until he is bigger. No point taking the risk with the other agro fish in there!


Eats from my fingers everytime now for the past week.

Cheers man! He is very small! Can't wait to release hi in with the others!

Shutting down mixed African 6x2 was the best thing I've done Firnix. Got a pair of 20cm P Bass in there now. Growing out, then going in the big tank smile.gif
