    Lots of them here. It's a start.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    It's easy as pie. I diden't ween, i forced mine off live. Let him/her go hungry for a few days, then feed using forceps. Mine got squid, shrimp and Octopus I buy in bulk from the ethnic supermarket and cut up into bite size chunks/strips...

    Life is tough, it's even tougher if your stupid.

    I use a small clear piece of sharp plastic and put the food on that. Dance it in front of the lion and make it target and hit the prey item. Use a real good vitamin supplement like vitachem marine or others and soak the item in it to absorb the vitamins.

    Ok I'll keep trying with the frozen. So far I can get the lionfish to look at the shrimp or scallop's I'm offering but it won't come after it or eat. In case I can't get it to accept the frozen how long is to long between feedings.

    When you say frozen, I hope your defrosting it first. Squid rings are dirt cheap (calimari). Defrost a ring and cut into a longish strip(s), dangle in front of it and it should go for it. As far as I know, they can go over a week without eating, mine went 5 days and gave in...

    I have found that if I keep Lions that I like to have a small container of Bo Peep ammonia around close by.

    I have been stung by them in the past and a quick application of Bo Peep to the wound was very helpful.

    It coagulates the protein of the toxins and stops them from traveling in your system.

    yea I thaw everything first. I'm not really worried about it yet I'm going on day 5 since it last ate. At this point I'm more worried about the snowflake eel overeating. I will have to get some squid and try that.

    My snowflake is one of my favorites when I see it. I haven't found anything it won't eat. The lion fish is still being picky though I guess I need to work on my presentation with the thawed food.
