add fish food as if you had fish... Just feed your imaginary fish. The food rots/decays creating ammonia

Just drop a pinch of fish food in there every 2-3 days. Maybe others can give you a more difinitive amount. Guess I judged based on the amount of rock and my gut feeling. I got nothing scientific, but fish food will do the trick.

It was a subtle, yet not subtle, suggestion to use a quarantine tank. Seems like most folks don't take that step anymore. And then wish they had.

If you can fit a Lion, you'll be able to fit an EMP.

The problem with the emperor angel and lionfish is that the angelfish gets to about 16" and the lionfish about 10".The emperor needs a lot of swimming room and the lionfish don't move around as much.That's the problem I can think of.
