Got a tiny one for my reef. Anyone got one for their reef? So far hasn’t touched anything and eating frozen.

I got a fuzzy and a fu Manchu. Once you have them eating, they don't touch anything. One of my favorites in my tank. Tons of personality.

I had one for a while in a 90 gallon with soft corals and LPS...about ten years ago.

I got it eating cocktail shrimp from a feeding stick before putting it in my big tank. It snacked on flakes and frozen every day, but I purposely fed it big meaty stuff every couple days. It needs to eat big meals every few days at least to sustain itself.

You don't have to worry about corals with lionfish the problem is any small fish it can fit in its mouth will become food eventually

Yeah. I also have a melanarus wrasse, mystery wrasse, moyeri wrasse, starry blenny, flame hawk, a pair of ocellaris clowns and an engineer goby.

I used to have a pink streaked wrasse and aurora goby that mysteriously disappeared when I was training the fuzzy lion to eat frozen.

Iím surprised theyíre not expensive meals. Iím setting up a 40B soon and am considering a predator reef.. all the other fish I love are too big!

I had one in a fish only tank. I had to trade it in. The thing was getting big at a volleyball
