Some of our reef enthusiasts will have heard that the lionfish have become problematic in parts of the Atlantic and their migration is being studied. This note in a recent article got my attention:

Prey: Lionfish continue to amaze us during stomach content studies. The recent effort turned up new records including two entire spotted goatfish, a large brown chromis, a small reef octopus, and even a small mollusk in its shell. Lionfishare eating nearly anything that will fit into their mouths.
