If the width of your tank is 4ft then I think you could get away with housing a Leiarius pictus as it could turn with no problem. We have a factsheet on this species here http://www.scotcat.c...rius_pictus.htm

thanks, do anybody know any tankmates they can go with and have anybody try stingray with them.

That's a huge tank that will weigh about 1.25 tons from the water alone! I wouldn't think a bedroom is a suitable place for it as the joists won't be designed to take the weight.


iam going to reinforce the floor.

thanks for all that info , could i ask a few more qestion , how many years have you have your wels and if you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for yours and were did you get it from , i have found two for sale , one is 51cm for 125 and the other 56cm for 150 then 29 for delivery do you think that a bit expensive . One more qestion , have you got a licence becuase i have heared that they are very hard to get. thanks for all your help and i will keep a update .it will be a couple of months before i get the money and now i just need cheap idea for the pond and now i thinking how big should i go, and do they just eat meat or can you feed them fruit and vegs . thanks again.
