Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.
Also known as a Soldier Lionfish, Indian Turkeyfish, or Devil Firefish (South Africa).
Lionfish are beautiful solitary creatures and quite popular with aquarists. The Devil Lionfish is reddish brown in color with vertical stripes in black and white. Some distinctive markings on this lionfish are the dark spot on the cheek and small tentacle above the eye. Although this fish is very similar to the red volitans lionfish, the Devil Lionfish has fewer dorsal- and anal-fin rays. Adapts to captivity easily when provided with adequate hiding spots such as crevices and caves. Plenty of swimming room is needed as is subdued lighting as this species is more active at night than during the day.
Devil Lionfish - Special Care Info
As with all Lionfish, the spines located across its dorsal, pectoral, and anal fins are venomous. The likelihood of a sting is a very uncommon event, but should not be taken lightly. Although the venom is stronger than a bee sting, every person reacts differently to the venom. It is highly recommended to get medical treatment.
