Welcome to, Lex.

Are there pictures of your lionfish?

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Is there a noticable lump in the stomach region of the lionfish? How big is the lionfish, how big was the damsel? What foods have you tried to offer? And, as already stated, a pic would help a lot!
