Red ( Peterois Volitans ) lionfish. React well to their owners and will follow you around the room (with their eyes) waiting on feeding time. Train him to take fresh or thawed shrimp / krill/ etc. and feed him a small damsel every now and then ( don't even think about feeder goldfish).

You do know that the spines are venemous ? If you're allergic to bee/wasp stings, keep your hands out of the tank. Shocked

Beautiful fish. Hope you enjoy him for many years.
