I just got a dwarf lionfish and I'm already in love with him. He's in a 30 gallon tank with a yellow tang, a picasso triggerfish, a clown triggerfish and a panther grouper. I love the way he watches and then boom! And the fish is gone. I would recommend this to anybody with a semi aggressive saltwater aquarium.

Beautiful lionfish! I wish i had one but my mom won't let me (im 14). My 30 gal SW tanks perimeter seams broke and now i don't have the tank OR permission for one. I'd need a 75 anyway.

I've had my shortfin almost two weeks, cool fish, great eater, very social, squirts water out the top of the tank when we feed our other fish first!

Whenever I am there when this fish is in its best condition, it never fails to make my jaw drop! Wnen I look at it, I realize how beautiful a living organism can be. I am amazed by the fact that this fish is so outstanding yet so dangerous with its poison-filled spines. Everyone should have this fish. You will never regret the day that you acquired this fish.

Just took back my medium/small lion. I was very aware that it'd eat anything it could fit in its mouth. What I didn't realize is just how big a fish that was. It will easlily swallow a fish a third its size, sometimes bigger. If the fish is too long to swallow right away, it will sit around with the fish's tale sticking out of its mouth until it can make room in it's belly. I also thought I could distract my lion by feeding it a large silverside just before I added a Diamond Goby that was borderline too small for my tank. Had no effect on my Lion's appetite. Went hunting immediately and had swallowed him by the next day. His stomach was so big that he didn't move for two days. I reluctantly decided to take him back to allow for smaller fish. If you don't mind having a size limit for fish in your tank, this is an awesome fish, and was one of my favorites until it started eating expensive fish. Keep in mind they grow extremely large, and fast if fed well. Also, don't feed feeder goldfish. They don't have the nutrition needed and can sometimes choke your lion.
