That IS disturbing!
I have heard of sightings as far in as Grande Lagoon .....but I havent seen any documentation of them here in shallow water.....until now.
That one looks healthy too!!!
Glad you got it.
Plenty more in line though to take its place.

I've seen a couple small lion fish on the Park East snorkel reef over the last couple weeks. Tried to stick them with my dive knife, but couldn't get them. Dove the Pickens jetty Monday and was expecting to see some, but didn't.

That is my theory as to why the lion fish suddenly exploded in this area..... After Hurricane's Ivan, Denise and Katrina.many saltwater aquariums were emptied ....it only took a pair....and BAM
