The Volitan Lionfish will add the wow factor you are looking for in any tank. Its vertical stripes of red/burgundy/white and large pectoral fins giving it the illusion of having a mane, hence the name lionfish. It will spend much of its time hiding in caves during the daylight but during dusk and dawn, they will come out and be the centerpiece of your tank.


The Volitan Lionfish should be kept in a tank with plenty of live rock giving it a place to hide during the day, as well as open space for it to spread out and swim in the early morning and late afternoon. Keeping multiple Lionfish in one tank should be approached with caution. If you plan on keeping more than one a larger tank is needed and the Lionfish should be similar in size and added at the same time to avoid aggression.
