Description

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.

    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.

    Very good price for local delivery . And fish were all healthy. But didn't have the fish that I ordered . They should really update the website and on their stock levels . Was given replacement fish but was 3 of the same fish which wasn't what I wanted . Other then that was happy with fish that arrived .

    My first order with Marine Direct for some corals. Well packed on time delivery although to the wrong airport. Qantas do not deliver to my regional airport on Friday. Dave was very good he called me air the airport and advised me that he had to send my coral to Melb.Airport instead of Moorabbin.He did apologize for th einconcenience and offer me a credit for my next order. Look forward to ordering some fish from Dave.

    First time order with Marine Direct. Dave called me back and assured me that my order will be delivered to my regional airport. On the morning of the delivery, Dave called me to advised that Qantas do not fly to the regional airport on a Friday and had to be delivered at Melb.Airport. A bit disappointed, have to make a 3hours round trip to Melb.AIrport to pickup. I managed to get a taxi truck to collect my corals for $110. Dave, apologized for the inconvenience and offered a credit on my next purchase. The corals arrived in a well packed styro foam box and they looked great. Will be looking at buying some fish next order
