    I think the key word here is survive, not thrive.
    I wouldn't do it even as an experiment

    I think they will adapt over the years and it'll be possible if this is true. Maybe 5 years from now. :) I wouldn't experiment until there was a proven strand.

    Doesn't sound like a good thing for the lion fish, but this is very neat! I would have to agree that it would be very stunning in a planted tank

    They're already a highly invasive species. Them adapting to survive in freshwater sounds like a recipe for ecological disaster...
