    Wow, would love that Bamboo, but just feel right keeping a creature like that in a tank.

    i know but its too late now ... they are already become accustom to tank living. At least i've noticed that pet shops have stopped bringing in Blue spotted rays.

    Hey Frans.
    I'm putting dibs on the lionfish if thats ok? With what else have you kept it before? And I second the post from Awvince. What size tank would be suitable? I've heard they aren't active swimmers?

    I can swop frags as well if you'd like some?

    O-and what are you feeding it? Mixed chopped seafood as in?

    Would mussel meat be ok? What else? Prawn? Squid etc?

    Thanx for the interest Awvince 7 X facor...from your posts i see you are a bit in the dark regarding Lions. Sorry to sound "all knowing", but they are more difficult to keep and therefore my comments in my original post regarding tank etc.

    at the bottom of this post theres a link..well worth the read. as for your Q's...tank size see the link (my tank is +/- 1650 x 750 x 750), they are eating chopped shrimp, salmon, tuna, brine shrimp...stay away from ox heart..they WILL DIE !) Tank mates is difficult as they will eat ALL ornamental shrimps etc and anything they can suck up....my one ate a nemo with the same body size as him /her !

    anyway heres the link
