 Product Description

Blue Dot Stingray (Taeniura lymma) 

 

The Blue Dot Stingray is also called the Bluespotted Ribbon Tail Ray and Bluespotted Stingray. It is an attractive bottom dwelling fish. It has a tan body with blue spots and stays relatively small, but requires a 300 gallon or larger aquarium as an adult.

The Blue Dot Stingray requires sand as the substrate, as its abdomen is easily scratched by a coarser substrate, which could result in an infection. It likes to cover itself with the soft substrate as camouflage. Once acclimated, it will eat any invertebrates in the tank. The tail spine is venomous and only used for protection. Caution should be taken when netting it, or when it is not visible and maintenance is performed in the aquarium. It should never be exposed to copper-based medications.

When first introduced into the aquarium, small pieces of cleaned squid or live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. Then it may be fed shrimp, scallops or pieces of fresh marine fish.

Due to its lack of hardiness when introduced into an aquarium, it should only be kept by an experienced hobbyist.

The approximate purchase size of your Stingray is measured as the diameter of the fish.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small 3" to 5" Medium 5" to 7" Large 7" to 9"
