    Hi all,

    My friend caught this fish yesterday and we have no clue as to what it is. Any help would be much appreciated.

    They get pretty big and eats everything that fits in their mouths - I have never kept them so best to ask @FransSny for more info

    Please do NOT feed your lionfish freshwater fish as these contains the wrong protiens etc.
