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. You should keep the temperature in your aquarium constant. Constant change in the aquarium can be dangerous for the fish in your aquarium. Keep a quality heater and accurate thermometer to ensure that the water stays stable for the aquarium.
