The eel will be the rock dweller, the angler the bottom dweller, any suggestions for a swimmer? Remember it's gonna go reef eventually.
Yeah,,,nothing....Sooner or later the "swimmer" will be a little to curious and gulp..
My angler is a loner and thats just the way it is...

Lionfish will not fight

there's really no fighting when it comes to lionfish...they simply pierce whatever threatening fish with its venomous spines and that's game over...either that or simply swallow the attacker lol.

It's a little overstocked IMO. Just for info, an eel is practically blind. You will have to feed it with tongs. Do NOT handfeed your eel. It will mistake your finger for a worm lol.
