No small fish equal dinner. Learned that. My fuzzy dwarf ate a six line 2 fire fish and a green chromis

"Goldfish are not a good steady diet for lionfish for several reasons. They're nutritionally deficient, inconvenient, expensive, and may make your lion aggressive." -- in one sense you are right, they are nutritionally deficient, if fed as a sole diet, however, they are not inconvenient, expensive (don't know where you got that one from, I buy 7 fish for $1....), may make my lion aggressive???? Wait, what???? Where did you get this info from???

Ok, so obviously, you do not own a Lionfish, you just posted something here that you found off the internet...

Honestly, do FULL research and have a little bit of experience behind you, BEFORE you go posting stuff you don't know about.

they like ghost shrimp and if a lionfish is introduced after others it usually leaves them alone.

Have you tried using a acrylic feeding stick and live shrimp? Had to do that with a snowflake eel before and it worked great

I just bought a lionfish about a week ago and I absolutely love him he's amazing and his colors are beautiful I love how he sits there and stocks my little hermit crabs my Keith and they're going to attack him but he never does it's really cute I have a dwarf lionfish and remind her standing they shed and are not really prone to disease so no it's a really amazing fish and I love them I call them tiger
