Question Volitan Lionfish Question

Hey everybody! Hey I noticed today that my lionfish lost a couple of his non venimous spines (or wings as I like to call them) I am not sure how they came off maybe he got nipped at by my eel but not sure. Anyway will they grow back? He kinda seems off balance now sometimes. Thanks in advance!!

I dont know for sure but I know alot of fish and inverts will regow stuff that is ripped off or falls off. I have never had a lion fish so I cant say for sure but I would think the odds are good that he will regrow it.

I'm not a saltie or an expert but I would say if you have good water conditions it should heal up quickly. Keep us updated!

The fins may heal depending on how damaged they are, but if the spines are actually bitten/removed then it is not likely those will regrow. Stubby lil lion
