Depends on tank size and what else is in the tank. Antenetta's tend to be not as hardy as Fuzzies and are harder to wean on to prepared food. I love my fuzzy. He has a ton of personality and is always out.

You might want to check out lionfishlair.com go to their forums lots of good advice there.

Thanks Shady I'll check out the link

I've been to 5 stores today and none of them have lions that are feeding. How annoying

Ya I was lucky with mine he was already eating prepared at the LFS which was a HUGE bonus.

Here is my fuzzy when he was in quarantine!

That's a good looking fuzzy. What tank size do you have and do you stock smaller fish too?

Fuzzy don't get as big so I think that's a plus if you don't have the tank to house him but the voiltalians r beautiful. Check out the fu man chu lion he's a dwarf but looks awesome he has a fu man chu lol

He is with a Clarkii clownfish and an engineer goby right now as well as assorted hermits snails and a emerald crab. He hasn't been the least bit interested in any of them. Going to add a Foxface and a flame angel to the mix at some point.

Oh and it's a 75 gallon.
