What size tank are they in? But they like to eat live fish and shrimp until you can slowly introduce processed food

Try some large guppies or very small feeder goldfish. That always worked for me. (They don't live for very long in the saltwater so make sure they get eaten and don't just go to the bottom and rot)

Both very nice! Lionfish are often slow feeders - i believe this is due to poor eyesight, so don't worry if this problem comes back now and again! I would stick to shrimps if I were you, take extra care not to overfeed as they are known to suffer problems and die from overfeeding! Good luck with your beautiful fish!
