I dont know I notices it after he was in the bucket dripping. In the store that part was against a rock so I couldn't see.

Sorry about this that could have been a very serious parasite i have treated a similar one before, although it wasnt a lion fish i treated. But since hes passed away treatment isnt inportant but u do need to ensure if u ever want to use this same tank again it needs to be properly cleaned and disinfected. The parasites could still be there if you dont, also dont use any of the same decor that cant be disinfected as these could also carry the same parasite and simply wipe out your new species in the tank.

Could he not just leave the tank fallow for 6-8 weeks?

For those interested, my bet was a raging bacterial infection and for such extreme cases all I've ever seen to work is Nitrofurazone at 4.0mg/L with long-term disability afterwards. In such cases it seems some strains are only prone to specific fish so it could complicate future lionfish additions if you didn't completely gut the tank and start from scratch....not fun.
