Nice tank, but I thought the rays are very delicate? Won't the wood damage the rays?

no the wood will not damage there disk or other parts of there body
only stones can damage them but if you delete the sharp pieces there is no problem

I think the rays would just dig them up, Subotaj. They like to bury themselves in the sand if I'm not mistaken. Although some moss on that "stump" would be awesome in MHO .

Sláinte!

the tree stump is amazing... i'd put the ray in a pond and setup a planted tank with that stump, but that's just me

it's a kind of hardscape that i would go buy another tank and set a whole new system with it.

No no, it looks gorgeus with no plants in it even.

you may try a big amazon sword and let it grow in for a month or so.
the root system on those plants are awesome.
