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...
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...
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?
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?
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...
Got the day off from work and just cleaned my 2 tanks (14 gal nano and 80 gal salt) so I thought I would share some pics of some of them..
In the big tank:
In the 14 gal. Nano
2 mated pr. O clowns. Had since they were penny sized.
I have more...
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
i am in the process of setting up a 125 gal predator tank.
i have plenty of live rock left over from my 280 reef build.
i am planning on keeping a couple of anglerfish(the smaller variety) and a couple of dwarf lion fish.
i understand that when i first get them i will likely require...
I just got a new addition to my tank today from my LFS, he was 50.00. Its a 3-4 inch Red Volitan Lionfish. I was told it and my snowflake eel are a great pair together and they are doing fine. I dropped a guppy in the tank and it charged right at it. Just thought id let you all know.:thumbup...

Hey all, just curious as to know how long you should wait before introducing other fish to your tank?
I bought a Volitan Lion about a week ago and I have my eyes set on a Picasso Trigger. Not sure whether to wait a few weeks or what?
Also my Lion is only a youngen, well it seems anyway as he...
