The Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish is also commonly known as Shortfin Lionfish or simply the Dwarf Lionfish. It features fan-like pectoral fins, and tall, quill type dorsal fins that make it stand out from other fishes. The Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish should never be kept in a tank less than 50 gallon. It also requires numerous hiding places, therefore we suggest you to keep many live rocks with hiding spots and caves. Initially at the time of acclimatizion, the Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish will be found hiding in the caves mostly. It exhibits few top spines that are venomous, and can inflict irritation similiar as when a bee stings. We suggest you to take precautions while handling this Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish. It is kind of a personable fish that quickly recognizes and responds to its owner?s presence. The Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish might eat up any crustaceans present in the tank that fits in its mouth, and generally a live feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. Apart from eating crustaceans, the Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish is considered reef safe. It grows to a maximum of 7 inches, and is also referred as short-fin turkeyfish. The Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish is disease and parasite resistant if fed properly and if water quality is maintained.
