Radiata Lionfish For Sale 

Scientific Name: Pterois radiata 

Description: The Radiata Lionfish is collected from the Red Sea and is not common in the aquarium trade as it’s similar looking cousin P. antennata. The Radiata Lionfish will tend to be shy in brightly lit aquariums but will adjust with time and make brief appearances. They always prefer to spend its time in caves, overhangs and other shady spots. It is best to keep the Radiata Lionfish with lesser aggressive tank mates. Proceed with caution when considering reef compatability. Radiata Lionfish do require an intermediate amount of care from the aquatic enthusiast.

The Radiata Lionfish can be kept in pairs or small groups in larger aquariums, and may be considered to be semi-agressive in nature. The minimum tank size recommended is 30 gallons.

Radiata Lionfish are venomous pet saltwater fish. The pelvic, pectoral and dorsal fins of this animal can cause extreme pain. If allergic, severe reactions can occur. If stung soak injured area in hot water and seek medical attention immediately.

Size: 1.5-3.5 inches and matures to 9.5 inches in length

Diet: Lionfish will eat smaller fish, ornamental shrimps and crabs. Smaller specimens will adapt to captivity and accept captive diets more easily.Brine Shrimp as a live food source is acceptable providing that you ‘gut load’ the live brine shrimp with phytoplankton, Kent Marine Zoe, Zoecon or any other liquid vitamin.

Once past the 24 hour period after hatching, brine shrimp lose their nutritional value as the juveniles (called Artemia) have consumed their egg yolk sac which leaves the Brine Shrimp have little to no nutritional value.

‘Gut Loading’ consists of soaking the Brine Shrimp in a solution of some type of liquid vitamin for about 10 to 15 min. prior to feeding.

This ensures that this pet saltwater fish, though hesitant to consume a captive diet, will be getting some sort of nutritional benefit.

Frozen Brine Shrimp are dead and unable to consume or soak up any liquid vitamins and are not suitable to use with this method.

Lionfish

Our fish arrived healthy and is doing great! These fish are difficult to train to eat any food other than live, but that's just the way they are. No reflection on the company. It's an amazing fish!!!
