    I'm probably a little late with this news, but i went to florida recently and, long story short, i found out that lion fish were somehow released in the atlantic and there are apparently tons of them and they are becoming very invasive. So invasive and plentiful in fact that there is NO limit...

    So i just don't know which direction I want to go with for the new old set up. With that being said I need to sell my Fu Manchu Lionfish and wanted to try local first. Here are some pics he is 4"-5" and I had him in with other fish with no problems other than the snails and shrimp.

    I have a lion fish that I put in small tank this weekend rather than seen it thrown in the trash. I live in Clemson and it is free to anyone who is willing to pick it up.
