Dwarf/Zebra Lionfish

Just a quick question. i have a 30g reef tank and wondering if a Dwarf/Zebra Lionfish would be ok to place in my tank. the web site says with caution and i was wondering if any one else had any problems with them maybe nipping at there corals or clams?
also i have 1 clown fish and looking to get 1 more. would that be a problem also?

the corals and clams are not a problem with lionfish. The clown's would most likely end up on the buffet line at some point in time.

That is my thinking also. I would also worry more about the clown.

Dendrochirus zebra, Dwarf Zebra Lionfish, will not bother your corals and clams. They will; however, consume crustaceans and fish readily given the opportunity. I'd give your clownfish (percula/ocellaris?) a week depending on the size, mouth size, of the lionfish lol. Oh, and a 30g would be a bare minimum for just the lionfish alone
