Description

The Lionfish is a Saltwater fish that has origins in Pacific and Indian Oceans. It can grow to be 12 inches in length and has a lifespan of 10-12 years. Lionfish are beautiful fish but they are also venomous. They have spines and if a person gets pricked, they should seek medical attention. They come in different varieties from normal to dwarf size; but it is recommended to avoid keeping Lionfish in commun ity tanks with small fish since they will feed on any fish (and small invertebrates) that can fit into their mouths.
