Lionfish Food

Hey everyone, I've had a lion for roughly a month, and he's doing great. I wanted to know if feed him only live ghost shrimp is ok. That's what he's been eating so far, and he's really healthy. I just want to check to make sure he can stay on this diet permanently. Thanks everyone!

Hi, ghost shrimp are ok but not very nutritious unless you gutload them.

I feed my dwarf lions with small frozen sprats that I attach to a clear feeding stick.

They were very easy to train to frozen foods when I switched to the clear stick.
