received extremely beautiful German bred Black Diamonds. Moreover the
fish are sorted by pair! The Black Diamond is a variety of Potamotrygon
leopoldi that originates from the upper Rio Xingu in Brazil. These
splendid stingrays attain a maximum size of about 40-60 cm disc width.
should never forget that the poison of these stingrays is quite strong.
Never ever a Potamotrygon will sting the keeper due to aggression, but
the funny animals become very tame. Sometimes one tends to forget that
even the tamest animals can become frightened by chance and then it is
possible that it stings.
these hints should not serve as an argument not to keep stingrays. In
opposite, everyone who has a tank spacious enough should at least once
in a lifetime try to keep them. They are really worth it!
For our customers: the fish have code 282412 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
