I'm getting a lionfish. What corals would it be compatible with? And are anemones and lionfish a good idea?!

Lionfish are not a direct threat to corals themselves, but they do eat many of the things that make up a healthy reef habitat like shrimp and small fish. They also eat a lot in general which produces a lot of waste. This means excessive nitrate and phosphate that will produce excessive amounts of algae under lighting sufficient for corals.
