fuzzy dwarf lion fish??

ive had my fuzzy dwarf lion fish in my qt tank for about 3 weeks now. im hoping i can put him in the fowlr in the next eek or two. my question is the tank the he will be going in also houses a maroon clown fish that is about the same size if not bigger the the lion fish. is it ok to put the both in there together? or will i have to re-home the clown fish? what do u guys think?

I have a dwarf lion as well I have him in a tank with a large clownfish, yellowtail damsel, and goby they all get along very well as long as they are about the same size IMO. I think it should be fine unless he outgrows your clown.

Is the frozen krill the full krill or the cubed version? I Have luck with my dwarf eating the whole frozen krill. The lion shows no interest in the cubed kind.

Be carefull, make sure the lion fish is well fed,Mine had a clownfish the same size as it in its mouth and they both died,They will try to eat anything they can fit in their mouth,and its a large mouth,
