1. 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.
2. It is a good idea to keep carbon on hand in case of emergencies. Carbon can be used to soak up anything harmful that may be introduced into your aquarium. So keeping an emergency stock can be a life saver.
3. Some people go by the ìinch of fish, gallon of water rule when deciding on how large of an aquarium to buy. This is a completely false and bad method to go by, you should always check your individual fish's tank requirements.
