Sheesh....at 45 that's a bummer to describe yourself as old. I know for one thing, if i couldn't see very well, a lionfish would be the last on my choice of fishes.

If you are blind, how do you mess around in a fish tank...and also notice that your fish are showing symptoms of ammonia/nitrate poisoning? And do you have another dog, such as a companion to get you around in addition to your toy poodle? Maybe you got the ringworm from it?

RPFLOL!!!!

Were you joking? If you was'nt, sorry, and thanks for being concerned.

Speaking of lion fish when I first got him no one told me they have venum and could stig you ,I put my hand in the tank to feed my puffer who loves me like i'm his daddy, comes right to my hand and eats
Then the lion came over to me and i'm thinking wow he's not afraid of me and then I found out why ,he got me good ,this was a long time ago
Again not knowing anything about a lion fish I go back to the pet store the following weekend to look at fish and I tell the guy he stung me and my hand was pretty swollen, he asked did I go to the doctor I said no should I have, he said well if its been a week then I guess your ok, said alot of people don't take a lion fish sting well ,said maybe I didn't get a full dose
I was amazed, you think they would tell people this before selling them a fish, I just thought it was a good looking fish and was different so I got it ,didnt know much about fish back then, now I research before buying anything to make sure its a fish that does well and is hardy

By the way I'm giving the lion to a buddy of mine this weekend that wants him
the reason is he is big and also stressing out my other fish in the sense that my tank at times looks like a ghost town as they all seem to be hiding now except the lion plus all of a sudden my puffer does not seem to like him, he keeps blowing him self up which is no good for him
anyway I'm going to get a new tang, I like tangs plus I need a mean one as I have a sail fine tang with an attitude problem ,heard theres a chinese tang thats nasty

Having a tank with a lot of fish in it, it is inevitable that some fighting will go one. However, removing a fish, and purposely adding an aggressive fish to fight with another does not make much sense to me. So one tang may "fall in line", then you will still have the new "nasty" one with an attitude. Where do you go from there?

well I think the tang is better because my other fish are a bit more nasty then the tang and the tangs don't bother them but they sure fight among them self ,was told that you should of one tang that's the leader and add him last so I was thinking thats what I would do, do you much about tangs and which are nasty and which are mellow

I ws told that with tangs there has to be one leader, the problem is I have a unicorn tang thats not to be a mean fish and I have a nasa which is not so bad, my sail fin was double the size of them both so he rain the tang gang will call it, lol
when the unicorn doubled his size to where he is bigger then the sail fin all they do is fight and nip at each other a good part of the day
I did something stupid a while ago, I bought a clown tang which from what I read is a hard fish to keep in captivity but it was beautiful and nasty
what was funny though it was a quarter of the size of the other tangs but he was like the captain and kept them in line, he died three months after I got him but the pet store guy wared me up front hard fish to keep but I took a chance, he said that I did good if I kept him for three months so I figured I would get another tang ,a nasty one, nothing big since size does not seem to matter with them as there all afraid of my trigger and puffer thats very small

Tank is already overstocked, I would not add anything. The lack of available territory is problem adding to the aggressive tendencies of your fish. Adding another simply compounds the problem IMO.
