    I love this fish. Would also like to know if it's available in SA and easy to keep once my reef is going.[​IMG]

    Do you know if this fish is coral friendly and compatible with a smallish tank like 100l?

    In a small tank, you keep small fish. And a lionfish will limit your other options a lot. They will become diner one night.

    Lion Fish are unfortunately predators and will feed on any fish that will fit into their mouths. best to keep them in a larger system with other predators.

    And to add...lionfish are highly toxic too, so i would not recommend this as a starter fish.
