    Poor thing. You should consider posting this in the fish disease forum on www.reefcentral.com there are quite a few lionfish keepers there.

    What you got there is what looks like a Fungus skin infection. they usually appear at a wound point. My book says to treat it with copper or zinc sulfate. Fresh water baths are also recommended.

    If you treat in your display tank you will have difficulty with determining and maintaining the correct dose. Lion fish are pretty hardy so I would treat him in a QT setup. that way you can be sure to not overdose while using enough to do the job.
