Dendrochirus Zebra is often referred to as Zebra Lionfish or Dwarf Lionfish. It features white, red as well as black horizontal stripes across the body, large pectoral fins that look like fans, and long dorsal fins that resemble quills.

A 50-gallon or bigger aquarium with a lot of hiding places is ideal. It will hide as it adjusts to its new surroundings. The spines at the top are poisonous which can trigger reactions similar to bee stings. To soothe itching, wash the area with the hot tub (100-110o F).

When the fish is first introduced to the aquarium the live saltwater feeder shrimp are utilized to lure the fish to take a bite. It is believed that the Dwarf Lionfish diet consists of fleshy food items like Live shrimp (including ornamental shrimp) as well as live fish and occasionally crustacean flesh.
