Russel's Lionfish

Russel's Lionfish

Although the Russel's Lionfish is generally a peaceful fish that floats through the water column, it usually does not tolerate other Lionfish. As with other Lionfish, it may devour small fish and ornamental shrimp, but needs plenty of hiding places.

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.

Russel's 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.
