The lionfish is a fish of many names, including the turkeyfish, the dragonfish, and even the butterfly cod. It dwells in the central Pacific and western bodies of water. This fish is a warm water fish that can be extremely poisonous. They are a spiky looking fish that will prey on smaller fish every chance they get. Don’t let this downsize the poisonous feature of the fish, as they can still use this poison to take down much larger prey as well.

This particular kind of fish is best kept alone in larger tanks, although you still find people that like to keep them in aquariums too. They don’t do well around other smaller fish. This amazing creature can live up to sixteen years if they are looked after correctly or just have a long life in the wild.
