    @Ravs Those are absolutely beautiful. What a lovely piece of nature to have in your home and to be able to experience everyday.

    I have now decided to add rays to my bucket list. LoL (shhhhh dont tell mom , ha ha )

    We look forward to seeing you join the ray family!!
    As for Mom.... if you get rays...you will lose the rays to her very soon after getting them... most guys I now have "lost" their rays to the Lady of the house!!

    Congratulations on a job well done.
    It's amazing how they have changed in about a year, with the colours popping out and solidifying.

    Thanks Pezulu, it definately is. The female's colours and pattern really came through nicely now, She has the best personality, the male is very grumpy

    I like the way they lean up against the glass, trying to get as close to you as possible.

    Yes, they are so comfortable when I'm around. Even when I clean the tank they come inspect whatever it is i am doing.

    That is awesome
    One of the reasons we handle the pups from birth
    We find that once in their new homes if treated lovingly they not skittish which reduced the chances of them panicking and spiking you
    This does not mean you can be careless and man handle them once they get bigger it just makes them have a more relaxed and friendly attitude

    They looking stunning @Ravs
    Thank you...

    Thanks Maria, Yep still need to be careful and not spook or corner them but it's like they know I'm not there to harm them, just making sure their home is clean.
