I'm glad he's eating. Here's some info that might help.
Now, I'm not trying to burst any bubble, IMO
you should start to replicate how they eat in the wild. It is very easy to feed them every day because they are like dogs and will beg for food. However, in reality they eat and then hide and digest for a day or two. Many in the hobby will not feed there lionfish for 3 days or so to replicate conditions in the wild. You, can do what you will with this info I just felt a moral obligation to give my 2 cents.
I feed mine the day after I see him hunting at night for my hermits
Regardless, I am happy for you. What a beautiful fish
