Ok, it seems to me you're done with this thread, so I'm gonna go ahead and hijack it. I'm looking into building a FOWLR tank, going to start buying stuff for it tomorrow. I'm going to design it around one fish, so I need as much info on this fish as I can get. What it eats, what kind of fish its compatible with, etc. I'm designing it around a Lion Fish.

Feeder Goldfish is the #1 worst food for a lion. If it won't eat anything but live food, well-fed Mollies are a better choice, but lions really need nutrition from saltwater food. If you get it when it is a baby, it is much easier to transition to frozen food. Mine eats PE mysis and the same seafood mix I give my eel (mussels, clams, squid, octopus) Lions tend to have bigger eyes than their stomachs and tend to choke or get blocked up on live feeders. Frozen is the best and cheaper for you.

Welpl, I tell ya, if he was undernourished, he was very big and healthy for a fish he wasn't supposed to be eating. In my Aggressive tank I had a Snowflake Eel, Spotted Grouper, Porcupine Puffer and a Lion Fish, all ate the same thing. Had em for 2 years, and man did they get BIG. Anyways the reason I don't have them is they got to big for the 125 I had them in. Coulda kept a couple but decided I wanted to go with Tangs instead.

Just like anything else, there are always exceptions to the rule. After doing research on lions and eels before I purchased them, I would not give them feeder goldfish.

Ok, first off, sorry for the necrobump everyone. If this ever happens, If it does it'll be a long way off, but does anyone know information about the Papuan Toby Puffer? I was checking out LiveAquaria and I saw it, apparently they get 5" and can be kept in a 55 gallon FOWLR community.
