    Well, for Saltwater, there is only one, hands down... Petoris Radiata, A form of Lionfish in which the rays of the fins lack flesh, and the fish is generally darker colored than Volitans or any of the other Petoris Lions.

    They are gorgeous, Graceful, and just darn cool looking.

    If you haven't guessed by now, I lean towards predators, but I am decidedly set on building a reef tank with a Lion as the apex species... I am sure it can be done, even though pretty much everything that is in the tank will look by food. It will either be a stunning achievement, or, well... an expensive buffet for a growing lion!

    actually it's a Thresher if I remember right. Very cool..

    so spec, you want to keep a fish that can swallow you whole huh? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    You guys know you can buy viable shark eggs on line and hatch them in your tank? (You definately need multiple hundreds of gallons for any shark.)

    Can you really? I'll go get some shark eggs, the one of the smallest species! only gets to, what, 8 inches long? No I'm not talking about freshwater sharks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] (the bala shark has supposedly gotten up to 2 feet, but I'm guessing around 15 inches)

    if kids were affected by video games we would all be running around in a darkened maze listening to repetitive music looking for fruit yelling yak, yak, yak, gobble, gobble, gobble, moo, moo ,moo.

    Spec, I think the smallest one is a few feet... check out the liveaquaria website, I think the eggs are in either the collectors section or the divers den (on the right side of the page)

    I think you need a few hundred gallons for all of the sharks, if memory serves, the eggs themselves are about 12 inches long.
