Widespread from Queensland, Australia to the Red Sea.
Not sexually dimorphic. Close examination required.
Mixes well as it is peaceful.
It is unfortunate that this species is considered difficult to keep simply because it refuses prepared diets. It seems they refuse to eat simply because they don't recognise it as food. A neat trick to fix this is keeping it with easier to keep rays that willingly eat prepared diets. When the ray sees other rays that share a body shape eating the food, it will be encouraged to sample the food, and eventually accept it into its diet.
A wide tank is ideal to give it a lot of swimming space.
A relatively peaceful species that mixes well.
A yellow ray with bright blue spots throughout, with blue stripes running down the tail.
