This is Lucy, my new Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish. Shes swimming around the tank and has found a nice little spot. I love my little Lucy!

Is Lucy eating dried foods?

not yet, she ate frozen krill at the store, but i still think shes getting used to my tank. We might get some ghost shrimp today for her. My brothers here and he thinks shes an awesome fish(so do i). And I love her blue eyes too!

Keep in mind, if your Lion is eating 2 days per week that is plenty. Very often they will "hold out" for live food by ignoring dried offerings. The aquarist thinks they won't accept dried, when in actuality they just aren't ready to feed yet, until the live food triggers a feeding response. Be patient and allow a good 5 to 7 days of attempting dry foods before you go to the ghost shrimp. You need the dry food for the proper nutritional value long term.

You are right by the way, that is an awesome fish!

Wow, she looks really great!
Totally perfect... I am so happy for you.

She is the perfect fish. She swims around, contrary to what most websites told me. She is very pretty and interesting. she wasnt expensive either, which is a big prolem in my tank. I was thinking about converting back to FW, but she has re-sparked my intrest in saltwater tanks.

She eats frozen krill now. And shes still the perfect fish.
