have you bothered to check your water parameters yet? I know you usually let the fish store do that, but you better get a testing kit quick and figure out what your water has in it. also, check your salinity and temp, etc. are you using RO/DI water or tap water?

also, do you have enough water movement and gas exchange going on? he could be suffering from a lack of oxygen.

I don't suppose you have a QT tank to place the lion in untill it gets better?

With a lion fish anything that will probably fit in its mouth he will probably eat it
