Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]
- Not compatible with fish small enough to eat, nor fancy shrimp. Really best kept in FOWLR type set ups, may nip at soft coral. Can be kept with other fish provided they will not attempt to bully the Lionfish and are not small enough to become lunch!
Diet[edit | edit source]
- Prefers live food, including shrimp.
