Theres a seller on eBay selling a Wasp Fish for 12 (27 total with postage).

What are these like? I haven't seen one before. I imagine very similar to a lion fish in the marine world.

I'm not considering one, unless I got another tank set up in the future, my cardinals would not approve. Just curious :)

I think they're great!! Haha, that tank actually looks like marine..

I wonder if it' has to be a species set up, or whether it can live with other fish that are big/can stick up for themselves. Barbs, silver dollars, etc.

The only info i can find on them is from a wiki page:

"The waspfishes are a family, the Tetrarogidae, of scorpaeniform fishes native to the Indian Ocean and the West Pacific. They are closely related to the scorpionfishes. As their name suggests, waspfishes are often venomous. They are bottom-dwelling fish, living at depths of up to 300 metres (980 ft)"
