    What type of Lionfish & Eel are they, secondly the eel will definitely outgrow (and outwaste) any one of those systems in a short while...depending on lion sp. it might still be ok

    It's a starter tank for my son and will go bigger with DT as live stock grows.
    What else can he ad?

    Hi Anton - you have a spare big tank ( allot more dishes to wash for him ) ;) so lets see...

    I think its called a cat shark or bamboo shark ?
    Harlequin tusk
    Clown trigger or trigger of your choice.
    And of coarse - lance fish...

    Lion fish is a P. volitans and can grow up to 14" in 18 months so will need to change dt soon.

    If you have a holding tank at home - i will try find out if we can start up a service - its a great idea.

    I think you should set up a flow bin and pond pump + filter for keeping water healthy ?

    Oh and get a electrician to set up a auto top up for the salinity...
