Sick lion fish

Hi any advise? My lion fish has not eaten for about a week and is starting to loose his colour? All the other fish and corals are fine? Any advise?

1: do you have a quarantine tank?
2: how long do you have your lionfish?
3: what do you feed him?

you mentioned "corals" I will recommend you a medication but you have to take your fish out and put him alone in a "quarantine tank"



coppersafe

this is the best medication for internal parasites
5mL treats 4 gallons of water for 30 days , do NOT add this medication to your display tank of you are gonna kill all your corals and inverts if you have any
this is what I use and I can guarantee this is the best medication I've used in 29 years in the hobby

I think a little more information is needed before starting any kind of treatment.


What other fish are in the tank? How long has the tank been set up and what size is it? What are your water parameters?

A picture could help!
