I will move my 40b and would like to turn it into a fish only tank, with a snowflake eel, and dwarf lionfish, and a possible puffer fish. I would feed them live ghost shrimp, that I harvested at my boat dock and quarantined...

    I have a question about a good diet for Lionfish. I have a small Lionfish that will not eat anything but live fish. Living in the Philippines has it's advantages.

    I am thinking of making a nano predator tank like ive seen online in a 15-20 gallon tank. I am planning on having a fuzzy dwarf lionfish and different soft corals. Would a red/orange angler be reef safe in there?

    So today I started a new tank. Nothing as extreme as my 150gal reef tank. As a matter of fact this 75gal tank will be a FOWLR tank with just a single lionfish. I don't feel I need a skimmer with this setup. It's a low bioload. The way I see it is a lion fish really won't have any uneaten...

    Ok, I know (or don't think) there's a simple answer to this but I just added my first fish, Dwarf Lionfish, to my new 55G predator tank on Friday and then found him dead on Sunday. The tank has been set up and cycling for about 8 weeks. My ammonia, nitrite, nitrates are 0, temp at 78, ph at 8.0...
