Be careful what fish you choose.
, only place in 1 or 2 small fish and be absolutely sure it is a temporary
stop gap in getting the lion to eat. Feeding any kind of FW
animal long term can cause problems and has little or no nutrition for the lion. Keep trying to entice the lion with the dead foods preferabley wity a feeding stick. A great alternative (long term solution) is getting black mollies which can be converted to salt and breading seperately as food stock. Might not sound appealing but it is actually quite environmentally sound.
feeder fish (damsels and the like) will be a huge risk unless QT
'd first and treated if necessary before using as a food source. Given the 4-6 week QT
time, not a good short term option.
