Eel and lionfish

Am thinking of redoing my saltwater tank. Has been up and running for a while now. Has several different corals. I wanted to have only 2 fish....a snowflake eel and a dwarf zebra lionfish. Would these be ok with my soft corals? Or will they mess with them? I have some mushrooms, zenia, Kenya trees, cinnamon polyps, and a Duncan coral. Tank is 55 gallons.

I think the eel will knock corals over the dwarf could stress coral some lions might lay on top of coral which could stress them

That and they are sloppy eaters, sometimes not good for the pristine waters some coral requires...but I don't see how it'd be bad with the corals that you currently have.
