Please understand that the members here are very much so invested in your project. That is why we are here. You will get different opinions from different members here and some of those opinions will be very constructive. Sometimes destructive. If you listen to the advice of Pasfur, Onefish2fish, Kellsindells and Bettababy, you will be fine. There are a few members here that might be agtagonistic at times, but the advice of the ones listed will be priceless compared to that.
That being said. I think that in the saltwater hobby, the more beautiful the fish, the bigger the restrictions. I know that we have discussed in several threads on this forum the compatibility of Lion Fish with other fish. You knew there was a risk involved in putting the two together. 29 gallons is small and the two fish are always near each other. Smaller space=smaller territory.
And get ready to have fish die. I spent $30 on a shrimp just to have him die after I acclimated. And I remember an Algae Blenny that didn't even make it home that cost me $25. Belive me, you will be spending some money on fish that might not make it. That is the nature of the saltwater hobby...
