I disagree that a volitan is not a good fish for beginner
The intent of that statement was not to criticize the hardiness or temperament of the fish, but of the New hobbiest learning care and how to generally "deal" with the inhabitants of the tank.

Once big enough it would probably make a meal out of your clownfish.

Lol, I get it. That would be a good trick. But..................
The Lion could eat damsels too. 8O
Of course for some, that is a good way to catch the damsels. :P

You might want to look into one of the dwarf lions. Either a fuzzy or zebra would be fine in a 55. They get about 7 inches, but will still try to eat your clowns or damsels if they are small enough.

An antenatta lion also stays relatively small. We feed ours rosies. Some kind of small goldfish. Many people do not like to feed live freshwater fish because of the risk of disease. That is indeed a risk and I am constantly trying to entice him to eat shrimp or other types of seafood so that I can discontinue the live. They are a pain in the a to keep alive long enough to feed them to the lion. Any suggestions on alternative foods would be appreciated. My tank is a 90g.
