Rays are very difficult to keep. IMO a 150gal would not be enough. Rays need a tank with a LARGE footprint. A guy on the local aquarium society forum actually breeds motoro rays his are in a 370 gallon, dimensions 8ftx3ftx2 ft. Rays do indeed have stingers, so really watch out for those. Another person keeps them as well, in a" wooden tank" basically a wood frame with a pond liner inside. Tank is only viewable from the top. 280 gallons, ( 96"x48"x20"). Also a ray is going to put you back quite a bit. The locally raised month old pups are a deal in terms of rays, but still expensive. I don't even look at the cost of the ones in the local stores. Rays are said to have lots of personality though.
