The Venomous Zebra Lionfish is a very slow swimmer, which is capable of eating any fish or shrimp that fits in its mouth. Initially while acclimating to the tank, it is mostly found to be hidden or isolated. With its bizarre design and attributes, the Zebra Lionfish makes a captivating addition to any aggressive tank. It can adapt to any tank environment, if provided with adequate hiding spots such as crevices and caves. The Zebra Lionfish exhibits few top spines that are venomous, and can inflict irritation similar to a bee?s sting. We suggest you to take precautions while handling this Zebra Lionfish. It is kind of a personable fish that quickly recognizes and responds to its owner?s presence. Apart from eating crustaceans and fish, the Zebra Lionfish is considered reef safe but with caution. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit and with pH of 8.1-8.4. Feeding this Zebra Lionfish in the tank by hand can increase the risk of being stung and is not recommended. It can be fed a variety of frozen and prepared meaty foods like shrimp, clams, scallops, krill and other similar foods, but some may need live food like small feeder fish or ghost shrimp to trigger a feeding response. The Zebra Lionfish is colored and shaped to blend in with rockwork, sponges, algae and other parts of the reefs they inhabit.
