Lemonbar with I3 - original i3 bar pops up on the bottom - hide?

I have just set up Lemonbar with my i3 setup, replacing the original i3bar. However, the I3bar pops up at the bottom of my screen - opposite the Lemonbar - but with no content except workspaces.

My status command is just

bar {
       status_command ~/.i3/lemonbar/

Shouldn't I only have the Lemonbar, or am I doing something wrong? How do I get rid of i3bar?

Yes, you're doing it very wrong. Remove the entire bar block from your config, because a bar block starts an i3bar instance. The status command only defines what data to feed to i3bar, but you want to remove it altogether.

Instead, just start your lemonbar script via exec.
