Volitan Lionfish, Pterois volitans, are commonly found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Lionfish have also been referred to as Turkeyfish in reference to their ornate fins that have a very feathery appearance. Another commonly used name is Fire Fish, given because of the Lionfish's ability to sting other animals. The tips of the spines are able to deliver a sting similar to a bee or wasp, information about treating stings is available in the detailed information page. Lionfish are generally peaceful, but should not be trusted with tank mates that are small enough to fit into their mouths. To provide the best care for your new arrivals, a minimum of three to four hours is essential for Lionfish acclimation.
