A 20 gal. tank is too small for a Lion Fish, even the dwarfs need a 50 gal. or larger. I also agree with David, they will eat anything that will fit into their mouths, they are predators after all. Here's a little info on them: Dwarf/Zebra Lionfish

Too small of a tank and they are predators.

I would suggest to get something else!
