    Wringo, use a feeding stick to dangle a piece of chopped fish in front of its mouth

    feed it small live fish and then train it to take dead food by getting small dead fish and wriggling them around like alive on some cotton thread or a stick

    Hi Wringo - awesome looking fish, mate. Where are you keeping it? In your tank together with the other fish?

    If so - this fish WILL start eating your other fish.

    It is a predator, and as such prefers live fish - as it has been said before - it CAN be trained to eat dead fishy food.

    BUT, it does take a lot of patience and a lot of work, to get the fish "converted" to eat "dead fishy foods"......

    And it's like the lion-fish - lion fish spines are also poisonous, as are the stone-fish spines. So - please be careful - don't handle the fish at all - and IF you HAVE to, use thick gloves - but preferably not.
