Lol here goes.. for the first 5-7 days, don't expect him to be out much (scared) DO NOT handle him, I've seen some nasty aftermath of a volitan sting. Once he gets comfortable, he will swim out in the open, usually in open water and he will even "fan" out. Be ready for some weird swimming style though, he'll swim sideways, upside down, straight up and down. And to prob my favorite part, feeding. Lions are gulpers, they swallow their food whole, then use muscles to crush/puree the food. That being said, they need fed just 2-3 times a week, perhaps 4 while growing but that's circumstantial. And please don't make the same mistake I did, its better to feed him two smaller chunks rather than 1 large chunk. (They are prone to choking and gastrointestinal infections), food should be varied I use sallys frozen silversides as a base, then a live food every once in a awhile. Do not feed him rosy red minnows as a permanent food, it'll cause premature death at some point.
