New Lion

I bought me a lion fish. Hes in my 20 gallon fowlr that i have had fishless cycling for about 2 months. The owner at my lfs said he was a dwarf lion. He looks just like a very small volitan to me though. I will post pics when I get home and let you guys be the judge. Hes about a 1 1/2 long. hes tiny , very cool though. Already eating frozen brine!

Thats the best part of digital cameras. If at first you dont have a good pic you keep trying till you do. With film cameras you shoot till your out of film and then hope they look good after you have both paid for the film and for the development.

Looks like it could be a dwarf zebra lionfish (Dendrochirus zebra) or it could be a Volitan (Pterois volitans). Tough to tell at that size. Dosen't make all that much difference the "Dwarf" Zebra will still get upto 12" in length, While the Volitan gets to about 14". He's real cool!!
