lionfish compatibility

Hi
I just read that a dwarf lionfish (Dendrochirus zebra) is a hardy fish for small tanks (10-30 gallons). Would it be ok with a watchman goby, a pistol shrimp, a cleaner shrimp and some coral in a 29 gal.?
Thanks

The shrimps are toast with any lion and the zebra get ten inches so its not even suitable for a 29 gallon.

I wouldn't trust one with any shrimp or small fish. You should see my zebra lion when I put live shrimp in the tank. Not a pretty sight from a shrimps point of view.

Get a 50g or larger if you want a lionfish, they grow fast and mine felt overstocked in a 75g so I got a larger tank.
