Potamotrygon Motoro

Also known as the Ocellated River Stingray, or Spotted River Ray, they are native to Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guyana, Guyana, Peru, Surinam, Paraná-Paraguay, Orinoco, and Amazon River basins, in fact Potamotrygon Motoro is found in nearly every river basin in South America.  The P1 Motoro is the most common, and comes in a variety of pattern morphs. Potamotrygon Motoro also has dozens of geographical variants, with a wide range of patterns unlike the P1 Motoro.

Motoro tend to have good feeding habits.  They usually accept live foods upon arrival, and wean to prepared foods easily.  They can be aggressive feeders towards maturity.

Growing to 60cm + they do require a large aquarium with an excellent filter system if they are to remain healthy. Good water quality is a must, and although they excrete large quantities of Ammonia even the smallest trace in the aquarium can prove fatal, same goes for Nitrite. As a long-lived fish they require a big commitment from any perspective owner.
