One of the smaller of the larger lionfish, getting to about 6 inces or so. Can be will be hard to get to eat. There is a strong possibility that it will eat small fish and invertebrates. it shouldn’t be keep with very aggressive fish, like triggers and eels, as they will chase it and can cause it to die from stress. It’s an aggressive eater but not an aggressive fish.
