Default What size ray can I get?

Dear experts, I want to get rays all these years..

But I cannot feed everyday. I travel a lot and 3 to 4 days no feeding is very normal in my comm tank.

I know young rays must be fed daily. . How about bigger rays?

And how big? 8 inch? 10 inch? Can these rays go on healthy without food for ~4 days?

That's why I ask bro..

As I read from forums
. Small ray must feed daily. Bigger ones are ok.

That's where I ask how big is big enough to skip feeding for 4 days to 1 week

Not advisable of you travel a lot and can only feed once every three to four days. Even as adults you still need to feed.

Last time when I kept tiger stingray if one day never feed I could see the back sunken down already.

For ray keeping, I fed them twice a day... Rays cannot go long without... My suggestion is not to get rays if you are travellimg alot and feeding only once in a few days... Or maybe get your family member to help in feeding...

if your ray is healthy,water is clean
baby ray that just absorb their egg sag from 3.5''-5'',all minimum can last at least 5 days onwards without harm
bigger ray can last much longer,a full adults eg 20'' ray can last easily 3 wks lah

the real kill is when hv food,they don't want to eat ok
