A very large lionfish that will eat small fish and invertebrates. Grows very large and wide fins, so it does take up quite a bit of space in a tank. Shouldn’t be keep with very aggressive fish, like triggers or eels, as they will chase it and can cause it to stress out and die. It’s an aggressive eater but not an aggressive fish.
