I agree. Try to get them on a good pellet food. My newest edition to my big fowler eats pellets from new life. It took me the whole month of quarantine to get him to take them but now he is fine. It is a radiata Lionfish. It took time and patience. And only reason I used freeze-dried was our LFS closed down for remodel and it was all I could get local. Bc I don't like paying shipping.

My fish ate new life spectrum pellets immediately so I would try some of their stuff.

IME on AA everyone says something different. I feed my fish once a day three times a week. Monday Wednesday and Friday. My wife feeds her fish once a day. We only feed what they can eat in about 2 mins max. But everyone has their way.

NLS, deifnitely.

Lions are adapted to eat large meals on an irregular basis. So adults should be fed something like once or twice a week (more often if there are small fish in the tank they may go after if they get hungry). But like oscars they should be fed frequently while young and still growing. A small lion could be fed 2-3/day, as it gets older this goes down to once a day, once every other day, etc.
