It all depends on the fish I guess. I've had big freshwater oscars with 1 inch fry. Never touched them. But my friends Oscar ate his 5 inch pleco. By the way I've seen lionfish before with smaller fish. I think it helps if they are fed well during the day.

Of course it depends on the fish and how its introduced and the age its added to the tank how it was fed before it was added ect. No matter the studies no matter how much they been observed by marine biologist no scientist or educated/non educated person can set there and say I can tell you how a fish is going to react or what they will do next. It's called a hypothesis for a reason and nothing about the ocean or freshwater has been proven or exact science.

Standridge, what type of lion is it? Because that is also an important factor. For example, a Volitans lion may very well eat the clowns someday IF he isn't fed enough and is feeling frisky one day, whereas a zebra, fuzzy, or fu manchu lion probably wouldn't attempt it with full grown clowns.
Part of why I'm getting a Fu Manchu. I don't want him to ever get a bug up his butt and go after my pretties. LOL
