the fu man chu has a yellow/red rating, meaning pretty hard to keep. but of course it's your call.
LOVE your lion, but my favorite fish anyways lol. UNFORTUNATLY this one i had died after like 5 months.. i don't remember if i posted that yet but i nervous to get another one, too picky..

I knew in the beginning of this thread the lionfish was on its way out, changing color is not always a good sign.
