Twinspot Lionfish (Dendrochirus biocellatus)

The Fu Manchu Lionfish, also known as the Twinspot Lionfish, or Ocellated Lionfish, has red, white, and black vertical stripes along the body. It has large, fan-like pectoral fins, and tall, quill-like dorsal fins. It is unique from other Lionfish because of the two, feeler-like appendages on the chin.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with numerous hiding places is suitable. It will hide while acclimating to its new environment. The top spines are venomous, causing reactions similar to a bee sting, only stronger.

When first introduced into the aquarium, live saltwater feeder shrimp should be used to entice this fish to eat. The Fu Manchu Lionfish diet consists of meaty foods such as live shrimp (including ornamental shrimp), live fish, and sometimes, crustacean flesh.

    I have had several shipments from Marine Fish Direct all with little to no issues. Fish arrived in great quality and are enjoying their new home. I was amazed at the service provided by a lady called Amanda. The experience and knowledge she provided about the fish and stingray I purchased saved me from days of heart ache and potential loss in thousands of dollars of stock. I refuse to buy large amounts of live stock from anywhere else and I have to travel 1.5 hours to the airport to pick up my delivery, that is how confident I am with this company. Aquarium looks great and fish look even better and in my opinion that is all a hobbyist can ask for.

    Collection instructions from the airport weren't very clear and I ended up driving to Qantas Freight. I was very worried when I saw that my strawberry land hermit crab had been in a taped esky with no air holes for at least five hours. Fortunately, he appears to be well now. I hope he survives his first moult in captivity.

    Always obliging and helpful, great place to call into on my way home South. Shop and displays very clean. Website does need to be updated a bit more often, and sizes of stock would be good.

    Recently purchased a snowflake and standard Ocellaris. Had a few challenges with the courier, however Dave has eased concerns with excellent customer service and patience to followup my requests. The fish arrived well packed and in excellent condition. Again, another good experience.
