What about a lion and a coral beauty in a 60g? No no?

Will do Fluff! I have always loved loins, ever since I learned to SCUBA.
Thanks Kaye!

Kaye,

Thanks for the excellent post.

I have a dwarf zebra in QT right now (about 2") awaiting transfer to the main (first lion ever). Just picked it up this weekend. I have not witnessed it feeding yet and understand it can take a few days. I have tried frozen krill, mysis and silversides. Hoping to avoid live foods.

Anyone have any feeding tricks. I understand they are good eaters(similar to a fw oscar) once they are trained.

TIA,

Have you tried to soak the food in garlic, that seems to work for mine that are a little shy at feeding time.

Thank You Fluff, I do like my lions......

TIA, some times you can not avoid live foods, if you need to feed live try ghost shrimp but feed the shrimp something nutritional first (gut load), you can feed them pellets, flake or cyclopezee.

Did you pick up a feeder stick?

Place the frozen food on your feeder stick, let the lion come to you or they can shy away. Even if feeding the ghost shrimp let it see food on the feeder stick. This lion is young and should be fed smaller chunks.

See if you can pick up some frozen Sand Eels, they are smaller than silversides, and just try and try again.

When the lion is weaned over to frozen, soak your foods in vitamins (Selcon/Zoe), they need a variety of foods, try Frozen Sand Eels, Silversides, Raw Shrimp, Crab, Octo & Squid. A young lion can be fed a small chunk daily or every other day, as your lion matures you can feed small chunks 2-3 times throughout the day, every 2-3 days.

Kaye

It depends what species of lion, they can eat 1/2 their body size, so keep this in mind when placing your lion with a coral beauty.
