Some of of the newer hobbyists may not have seen these 2006 Reef Tour pics of my former suspended reef with the Juvenile Batfish and Blue Spotted Ribbontail Stingray. Dion/Holdencraft33 has it now, since I moved to St. George.

The ray is on the sand underneath the reef on the right side, its tail sticking out to the right.
 
Can't forget the local grown "Tea" Tomato in the huge Klyxum soft coral.

Tanks, It's wonderful what all that open, white sand does for filtration, for general health and of course for appearance. It was/still is, a "City in the Clouds" Smile (I love Star Wars, too.)

that is awesome.  After seeing all these suspended reef pics lately it's making me want to set mine up that way (still in the process of setting it up). 
 
So I have a newbie question here, I nothing about SW rays.  How big will that blue spot guy get, and how big of a tank will it need?  Just curious is all.  I've done tons and tons of research on FW rays but nothing on the SW guys.
