    Hi everyone! I'm back in the fish game, and am looking into setting up a fish only tank this time for a lionfish or maybe a banded shark. I'm not really set on either one, but I'm looking for something which will be unique. I'd like to have one large fish, rather than a few smaller ones, but...
