dwarf lionfish and clownfish

Would a dwar Lionfish be compatible with a perc. clownfish? Both brought as babies. They would be housed in a 45 gallon tank with liverock. TIA

the lion will eat pretty much anything it can get in its mouth. I would not try it.

I wouldn't try that. I've heard of unsuspecting people who had both, and then one day only the lion.

I took a dwarf lion in that was housed with a clown and other small fish for a year, well one day the person came home and all their fish were gone! Lions grow faster than clowns so the time will come when the clown fits.
