    Hey... saw this section and it reminded me of my video of my lion fish eating a goldfish.

    Now I do admit, at the time, I wasn't aware it was the best diet for it, but it grew healthy, so take it as a lesson to others I guess. What do others feed there lionfish? :;shat

    Wow. That Lion is enormous. Goldies not a good idea, but interesting all the same.

    yup, they are high in fat. He was super healthy, and just got to big for the tank. This was one of the last videos. It went to someone who was able to house it in monster sized aquarium.

    Hey wasn't that the Lion Fish from Star Trek The Next Generation in Captain Picard's redy room?

    He was about 3-4 years old, grew from 1 inch to about 7-8 inch and that is body size not fins.

    Very awesome fish, lots of personality, and would even eat out of your hand.

    and No sorry he wasn't the same one. :p
