Ceja Ray (Paratrygon aiereba)


One of the more unusual looking freshwater rays, the Ceja or Manzana Ray is widespread throughout the Amazon and its tributaries, where it is usually found in sandy, moderately shallow waters with some current. They are specialized live fish eaters, using their oddly shaped disc to trap and eat entire schools of smaller fish. In the aquarium, they will almost always require live feeders as a diet but it is possible to wean them onto frozen feeds with time and patience. Due to their enormous adult size and challenging food requirements, this species is realistically only suitable for very large indoor ponds and should be kept only by highly experienced hobbyists or professional aquarists.
