i would say it is possible.. but if the rays are kept in room temperature, no aircond - i do not foresee any requirement of a heater. unless the fish is sick

I understand that some of the baby rays like 4inches are fed with frozen blood worm. When is it a good size to convert them to MP and is there any tricks that bros can share here? Thanks in advance...

ya Pups usually fed Live feed lil ghost shrimps or lil torsats

perhaps 5in onwards is a safe age/size to start training on MP can starve 24hrs then put in a LITTLE piece of mP

after 5mins uneaten remove... starve another 12hrs- repeat process

personally, i find that they are most receptive to live ghost shrimp, then you can wean them onto frozen ghost shrimp, then you can mix frozen ghost shrimp with market prawn, then you can wean then onto market prawn.

Thank you for sharing the useful tips.

Besides water change, how do we keep Nitrite, Nitrate and Ammonia levels low?
