1. It is good to budget out the cost of your aquarium. You should leave plenty of money to purchase quality filters, pumps, and heaters for your aquarium. Your big aquarium is going to do you no good if you do not have the proper equipment to keep it going.
2. It is never a good idea to hand freed a Lionfish. No matter how tame you think your Lionfish to be, they still have very venomous spines and should never be hand fed.
3. If you have a protein skimmer you should shut it off when you are adding medicine to your aquarium. The protein skimmer will remove any medicines added to the aquarium.
