You just need a smaller tank so they can't get a running start. I keep all my eagle rays in my 2.5 gallon pico along with my shoal of blue hippo tangs. There's no aggression, they all get along and hang out together.

What? What's the big deal? They're small right now and I'm going to upgrade to a 240 in a few months. Razz

Mine were doing fine... although the tangs stayed in the rock work a lot. I haven't seen them for awhile though. You think they may have gotten lost, were unable to find their way out of the rocks? I have a lot of rocks...

Nah... It's a tattoo. Doesn't hurt the fish at all. They just nail it's wings down to a giant piece of wood and burn it's skin until the image looks right.

Did you guys read the paper this AM? 8ft Mako shark (375lbs) jumps into boat off the Texas coast! Better a Ray than a Shark Wink
