Dwarf Lionfish

I have a 300L reef tank with the smallest fish being two clowns that are maybe just over an inch long, would a dwarf lion fish eat them?

Depends on the size of the lion when you got it. there is always a risk.

You got a pic of yours? What do you feed it? What size tank have you got it in?

Do you have any shrimp in your tank or would he eat them?

I have a cleaner shrimp ( full grown) amd he doesnt go near it. I would never add a small shrimp like a harliquin or he'd eat it. I made the mistake of adding a smaller gobie once and he ate that. If he can fit the fish or shrimp in its mouth he'll eat it...
