View Full Version : Lionfish with goiter

Dr. Marine,
I've had a beautiful young volitans lionfish since Dec. and he only eats frozen krill. Yesterday I noticed he had a big bulge under his mouth, and after reading your article, I presume it is a goiter. What can I do about it? He didn't eat today, and the goiter is the same size. When I realized I needed a variety of food, I gave them frozen variety food today, but is it too late? Can he be cured?
Thanks for your help.
