 Hi  everyone  ....I  am  having  a  lionfish  &  sea  horses  and  feeding  them  with  guppies.I  am  staying  at  a  place  where  it  is  difficult  to  find  marine  food  or  assistance  from  local  market.Sometimes  i  fall  short  of  guppies  in  winters,  even  i  am  having  a  pond  for  the  purpose.If  anyone  can  suggest  alternate  food  which  is  easily  available  as  they  are  not  accepting  flakes  or  palets  etc.   Confused

 Feeder  fish  doesnot  provide  the  balanced  nutrition  to  any  fishes.viz.  FW  or  SW  monsters.
 Starve  him  &  make  him  accept  dry  food.

 There  is  no  way  these  would  accept  flakes  or  pellets.  Mollies  would  do  too  as  an  alternate  feed.
 
 What  are  Sea  Horses  being  fed  on?

 GOD  DAMN  !!!!!!!
 
 
 I  really  feel  sorry  for  those  fish..  Seahorses  are  endangered..
 
 Seahorses  need  to  be  fed  3  times  a  day  on  a  variety  of  microscopic  live  food,  the  water  parameters  need  to  be  perfect  otherwise  they  will  die..
 
 As  for  the  lion,  its  gonna  get  stunted  and  will  also  die  because  of  the  wrong  diet..  They  need  a  variety  of  foods  fromt  he  sea.  Prawns,  Squid,  and  fish  would  work  great..

 They  love  Artemia  too.  Certainly  don't  make  good  candidates  in  captivity,  unless  backed  up  with  good  experience.

Very  adamant  fish  Huh  I  thought  starving  would  do  the  trick.
 
 Shanky,
 I  know  this  predator  loves  small  fishes  but  my  ex-office  had  huge  pyramid  like  SW  tank  &  caretakes  were  feeding  greens  to  all  stuff  there  including  the  lion.  The  fish  was  pretty  active  and  grew  quite  big  in  short  time.  Your  views  on  that?

 Yes,  i  have  had  success  feeding  them  on  dried  sea  weed.  But  never  saw  the  belly  bump  nor  i  was  happy  with  the  growth  rate  and  shape.  IMO,  Lionfish  look  very  ugly  with  a  concave  belly.  Wink

 Thanks,  didn't  check  its  belly  though.
 They  have  restrictions  on  carrying  camera  mobiles,  digicams  &  any  other  transferrable  media  in  office  premises  otherwise  I'd  have  clicked  the  snap.  If  I  remember  correctly  they  had  couple  of  them.  This  is  the  only  SW  fish  that  fascinates  me.  Wink
