    Lionfish appetite

    I have had my lionfish for almost a year, when purchased he/she was eating ghost shrimp; however, it converted to hand feeding almost immediately. It was eating black tiger shrimp, bay scallops and silver sides without hesitation. It seems now that it is disinterested in food and defensive when I approach the tank. The Ph, S.G. , ammonia, temp etc, are normal and the other fish show no signs of abnormal behaviour. Any knowledge, suggestions or ideas that my help would be greatly appreciated.
