    I am thinking of trying to get a fuzzy dwarf lion and i was wondering can they live with soft corals long term ? And also are they compatible with scorpion fish?

    I've asked quite a large number of people if this pairing would work and the best answer I've gotten is that "A lion fish will eat anything that can fit in its mouth" Which is nice information to have, but doesn't really address my question properly. So which is it? Is a Coral Beauty angel...

    Hello! Looking for some advice on adding a Fuzzy Dwarf Lion to my 150gl reef tank. I have a Hippo Tang, Scopas Tang, Two Clowns, Two Blue Damsels, Six Line Wrasse and a Spotted Cardinal right now. I added a fuzzy about a year ago and it didnt make it but a month, but it was a small/medium. I was...

    My lionfish Gilberto's eyes are both cloudy and have gotten cloudier over the past few days.. I had a puffer die a week or so ago of ich or/and some sort of white fungal infection. He died in my tank and I didn't notice right away causing some spikes in my water levels which I'm currently...

    Well, I had the fish store order me a zebra dwarf lion to replace the fuzzy that just died. He got a couple in and when I went to pick one out I chose the "standout." After I got him home I started to study him and I am now convinced that this is not a zebra, but it's an antennata lion. I was...

    I have a 1 year old Fuzzy Dwarf Lion. Over the last couple weeks, he has been acting weird. He didn't eat for a couple days, then ate a little, then didn't eat, etc. He hasn't eaten for about a week now. He has just been breathing heavy. Obviously, I've been worried about him. Other than the...
  7. The THINK Tank
    I have a 37 gallon tank and have a few different ideas for fish but I'm unsure they're compatable together. First, yellow watchmen goby and pistol shrimp. Can they have other tank mates also or are they better off alone? Or Second, Red fin waspish or dwarf lionfish? Are there any other...

    I though I would be okay. The rule was do not keep anything in a tank with a predator that could fit in that predators mouth (+20% just to be safe). I keep a small Russell's Lion (4 inches) with a small spotted Sea Robbin (3 inches) and some inverts. I also had a sizeable banded coral shrimp...

    I'm looking for a few small, colorful fish (or maybe a single larger one) that could accompany a baby Volitans Lion in a 30 gallon FOWLR. Basically, what is your favorite inexpensive add-on fish? Is there anything more interesting than, but within the same price range as, damselfish?

    Hello, I bought a Volitan lionfish about a week ago and am having trouble getting him to eat. I have tried to attach small pieces of shrimp and fish to some fishing line and dangling them in front of him. Today, it looked like I made some progress in that he opened his mouth and approached...

    i was curious as to if it would be safe to house two different types of dwarf lions in the same tank? if not, why? the tank is a 125 gal, and only houses a anglerfish right now, and he never does anyting but sits there pretending to be a rock
