    Thank you. I expected her to be shy at first but she's proving to be quite the camera hog. 20180106_204818.jpg 20180106_204838.jpg

    No shrimp or slender body fish 1/2 the size of the fu. On another note, dwarf lions can be difficult to feed. The fu may be especially difficult, I have never known anyone keep one o these guys long term feeding a dead only diet. They are very difficult if not impossible to wean to dead food long term. Even if they initially take dead foods it likely won't last, or they will not consume enough to maintain. I highly suggest if you plan to get fu, be prepared to feed them a live diet forever, my fu is now over 6 years old.

    He'll be safe. Cleaners, fires, peppermints, all are a wonderful snack for a fu. They are sneaky cool when they hunt though, mine was a rescue that wouldn't eat, so I fed him live. In the beginning I had a fu and fuzzy in a 30g I was nursing back to health, I fed them some live damsels. I watched the fu stalk the one damsel, he watched where he slept. I would watch fu perch in this one spot at night. A couple of mornings later, fu had a big fat belly.
