Thought I'd introduce to you, another of my fish.... the Bearded Ghoul. This little guy is the most odd and most popular of my collection and he was featured in Reeflife magazine and in Frank Marini's book "Lionfish and Scorpionfish". A finer sandbed is a must with this guy, for he is often found throughout the day buried in the sand. But bright colours always mean something in nature and this guy is no exception. Those colours are a warning that this guy packs a whallop of a sting. He's related to the stone fish with venom to compare. But when he's REALLY ticked, he will turn back on to you and flash the yellow backs of his fins as you can see in this video. They don't have a swim bladder, so they rarly are found in the water column, but don't doubt these guys can get "up there". They may be a clumbsy "swimmer" but they can do it. If you rock is pilled high enough, they can also jump out. My guy would not eat from a stick. Every time I tried, he would flash and turn his back on me. I started feeding him PE mysis with hidden chunks of fish flesh "sent down" to him via a tube. You can see in this pic he is hungry and is staring at his food corner waiting for the delivery. Here you can see the delivery: He moves his finger appendanges through out the sandbed, looking for the food. Since we moved, he's been in an 18g but will soon move to a 30g. At 4-5" long and being a minimally moving fish, he doesn't require more.
