Do not understand the reasoning for this type of question as it can't be answered since that is an inherent trait in every living creature. The will to live is a psychological force to fight for survival seen as an important and active process of conscious and unconscious reasoning. This occurs in all living species particularly when one's own life is threatened by a serious injury or disease.

Fight or flight comes to mind

I'm trying to say what has the best defense, like a lion fish or something unique in a cichlid I haven't heard of. Just looking for discussion.

Each species has adapted specific survival skills based off geographical location and predation. Watch a lake tang documentary and you'll see how defenses are tailored to the area in which they inhabit and the competition they face. I still think shellies go hard...

There is no "better at it". Species have adapted differently to survive. Depends on too many factors... Such as fish a is better at surviving in the open and deep. Fish b is better at surviving in shallow rocky areas. Both are survivalists, evolved from psychological standpoint. Which translates to physical traits and behaviours, based on matters at hand. I.E. Predation, terrain, food supply, breeding.....
