Default Dwarf Zebra Lionfish

How many people got into these type of lionfish, almost done my 75gal reef tank, i've got few small fish, but hoping if i can get it to eat frozen meal that i'll try to prepare as high protein as i can, that it will be not hunting much for fish at night time, looking for more input on this if im making a good decision,

You can't stop them from hunting. They are opportunistic predators and will gladly eat a fish, even if they've been fed recently. That said, they won't tackle fish they can't straight up swallow, so if your small fish are too large, they will remain unmolested.

Don't do it man. Fish are pigs, as Albert has posted. It'll finish what you feed it and then continue hunting/gulping down your small, expensive fish.

Just get one. They're awesome. Here's a pair in a reef I maintain:
