BTW...how do you know mine is a male. O know you count the stripes, but is it the ones on the body or the fins. Because by looking at the pics its seems that both our yellows hav the same number of body stripes and supposedly mine is a male and yours a female.

You tell by the stripes on the pectoral fins- not the body.

I wanted to know what everyone is feeding there lionfish in order to maintain a "balanced" diet? He eats everything so i wanted to know what wold be best for him. I must admit I like to watch him devour ghost shrimp, but this is only a treat not a dietary staple.
