    What did you feed the lionfish?

    Top pic might be a fish louse or isopod. When did he show up, after the lionfish died? If yes, then maybe he is the reason the lionfish died

    remove that isopod. Most isopods are parasitic. I think it was inside the lionfish gills. And once the fish died it climbed out.

    What is the size of it?
