I bought a system from someone on ebay, a 55gal tank and everything in it, which included a volition lionfish, dogface puffer and panther grouper. It was delivered on Sunday and the lionfish has never eaten for me, and I'm getting worried. I'm feeding frozen krill, I put it in a cup and scoop out some tankwater to let it defrost. The puffer is a pic and the groups is a fast devil that snags 2 for himself every day or two, but the Lion doesn't even look at it, in fact when I feed he turns away and faces the wall. I called the previous owner and he said that the Lion doesn't like Krill, that he fed him frozen raw shrimp from the grocery store, so I went and bought some an still nothing. I have dangled it in the water, let it blow around the tank from the jets, let it sit on his favorite rock, put it on a stick and inched it toward the lion, it even floated down and hit him on the head LOL
I don't know what else to do. Wednesday I went to me LFS
and they recommended Xtreme Garlic but there has be no change. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I took him to the aquarium store the day I got him and they said he was a very hearty heathly specimen, he's about 1 1/2 yrs old.
