looking for a fish Idea.

I seen a dwarf Lionfish and I fell in love with it. that thing is awesome. I would love to have one in my 55, but I ran into a delime. I currently have the following, 3 turbos, 1 acenca sp? snail, 1 yellowtail damsel, 1 domino damsel, 1 green chromis, 1 green clown goby. The LFS said the DLF would probably eat my other fish.

SO ...

What fish look similar, and will not eat my other investments? I may ditch the others into my parents Sw tank to get him if i cannot find an alternative. What fish would be good with him in a 55? something exotic looking like him possibly more colorful.

Well, to be honest, my co-worker has a fuzzy dwarf in his 55 along with a Butterfly and Pygmy Angel and has never had any attacks from the dwarf. It's been in there for about 3 months. So it may be OK, but don't quote me on it.

As far as other fish that look similar, none come to mind that would be non-venemous or reef safe.

the goby and the cromis he would almost for shure the domino if its small enough it soon wont be
snails are not a problem if your set on buying it get rid of any small fish the domino and the lion will fill that tank up in a hurry expesialy if you have a bunch of rock
you could get 5 more cromis they like to be in groups of 6 or more and thier aditude changes alot once thier is a group of them
having a couple of damisils you would need something that can put up with thier greef

i've had a really big 10" lion fish with a dwarf and a very large moray, in a tank with little fish like that, and ive never lost one of them. but i always kept my 2 lion fishes well fed and my eel chases them when he's hunting his goldfish, but is too uncoordinated to catch them.
