Brackish lionfish?

    Just going off the abstract, it seems like lionfish are just fine with mid-range brackish salinities. I've got too many tanks already to even consider trying it, but any thoughts?

    Going off of that one experiment, it says you can get the fish to survive in brackish water. I they stated that at 7% salt vs the 35% actual marine water, the fish seemed alriight. They do state that the fish was only kept in this condition for 28 days, not even a full month.

    Unless you are planning to kill some lion fish, I would keep him as the beautiful marine fish that he is rather than trying to force him to live full time as a brackish fish.

    Oh no no no, I'm not planning to get one, I was just curious about thoughts on the experiment's implications.
