Anything smaller than the lionfish is fair game to become its prey.

They are not aggressive at all but have a huge appetite. Keep them well fed to avoid them eating all your smaller fish. Every small fish I a swimming snack

Anything smaller than the lionfish's mouth is food. It should never be put with gobies, firefish, shrimp, small crabs(Hermits are ok), or really anything thats about 2 in. Ive found that if well fed, they'll ignore most fish. They are sedentary, and don't need to feed very often.
