Lion fish

Anyone know any pretty fish I could put in with a lionfish that it wouldn't eat?

Lions generally won't go after any fish too large for them to swallow. Stick to rounder shaped fish over elongated fish to house with the lion and you should be fine. Long and skinny is much easier to eat than short and round Just make sure that whatever you put in there is bigger than the lion's mouth.

Hope this helps

Trigger fish, puffers, snowflake eel, and anything that won't fit in their mouth. How big is your tank?

I wouldn't add puffers because they might nip at the long fins that the lionfish has. Triggers might do the same thing.
