The Antenneta Lionfish is a beautiful solitary lionfish specimen, which features vertical stripes along its body. It has large flowing fan-shaped pectoral fins, with which it loves to spend time out in the open at dusk and dawn, but generally will hide in caves in daylight. Therefore, we advise you to keep plenty of rockwork and caves as hiding spots for the Antenneta Lionfish. We advise you to handle it with some caution, since its pectoral spine is venomous and can be a menace. If provided with all the necessary requirements, the Antenneta Lionfish adapts well and fast in captivity. The aquarium should be well- equipped with subdued lighting, as the Antenneta Lionfish tends to become more active during the night than day. It is also commonly referred as the Antennata Lionfish, Spotfin Lionfish, Banded Lionfish, Broadbarred Firefish, Ragged-finned Firefish, Rough-scaled Firefish, and Scorpion Miles. The Antenneta Lionfish can grow up to the size of 8 inches, and at that size it should be kept in a tank not less than 60 gallon. It may eat smaller fish, shrimp, and other crustaceans in the tank and it is considered reef safe but with caution. Its diet should include meaty foods such as live shrimp, live fish, and occasionally crustacean flesh. The Antenneta Lionfish thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. We recommend you not to add smaller fishes, which might become snacks for the Antenneta Lionfish. It requires moderate care, and therefore doesn?t make a good choice for a beginner aquarist. As long as the other fish won?t fit in their mouth of the Antenneta Lionfish, they should be safe.
