Probably Volitan then:

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Volitan Lionfish, Colored

Lionfish aren't aggressive per say they will just eat anything they can fit in their mouth. Given Volitans get to be about a foot very quickly you need to stock with other fish that will be about 11-13". That are peaceful or semi aggressive otherwise they may pick on the lion.

What size tank is this going in?

The puffers and triggers aren't recommended for lion fish. They will nip the fins of the lion fish. Foxface, wrasse ,dwarf angels lion fish are peaceful fish

Foxface maybe but a full grown volitan would make a lunch of most dwarf angels and wrasse.

I'd look at Tangs, medium size angels ect...
