30gl FOWLER tank build

I am going to start my 30gl tank up for some small predators and non/with caution reef safe fish.

I was going to add a dwarf lion (for my mom)
And a flame angel

And maybe a long nose hawkfish
And passably 1 more fish around 4in

Looking for thoughts and input.

That's to small of a tank for that many fish

What about the original 3? My only concern is no skimmer to get the extra 30% out because I'm fine doing 2water changes a week no problem.

Would a lion and flame angel work together?
If anyone has experience with the two?

Okay. I was thinking live rock rubble in there as media? And setting up a small refuge in the power filter just for pods and bugs and stuff not really for nitrates.

Do you think this would work well?
