It finally happened with my lionfish!!!

He snatched some shelled shrimp from my hand finally!! followed it up with silversides.. and then another small part of the shrimp! Took about 2 months.. but yay! shrimp is so much cheaper! LOL

Really doesn't sound like a good idea to feed a lionfish by hand but honestly I can't say i wouldn't try it

im going to take pictures and video of it.. you guys would be suprised how careful around me he is lol. I cleaned out the tank the other day.. as soon as my hand went all the way in the tank, he retreated to his little cave and didnt move till he saw me leave lol. he wants nothing to do with me other than food... and that he is gentle as can be =P
