Are they a pest cause they damage anything or having a negative effect on the reefs ?

There is nothing in the food chain that is stupid enough to try and eat them. And they will eat almost anything. Look how they are built, like a pirate ship flying the skull and crossbones.

Wasn't it an aquarium that lost a few? And yeah they are horrible to the entire ecosystem. I think it's illegal to throw them back into the water if you catch one. There's also a beach where you can literally scoop up small lion fish. The guy at my petco told me about it lol

Yes, it was a hurricane a few years back. Aquariums are the only way they could have gotten there.
