    Notes:
    I got givin this lion fish from some lighty that caught it in a rock pool, thank god he is still alive. it was about 30mm when i got it and is now about 100mm. I tried to feed him krill and all the other suggested stuff but he seems to prefer omega one marine pellets with garlic which im not complaining about. hes more than double the size of my goldy and shrimp and hasnt tried to eat them yet nor has he touched my corals. whether he will stay that way is up to him =) hes as placid as my two clowns, if not more.

    I hate to let him go but my nano is just about to small for him now. ​

    Brett, sorry but I have to close this thread as it is illegal to sell locally caught livestock.
