Lion will eat the dragonet. Dwarf angel needs more swimming space. The dragonet also needs a larger tank as it would go through the pods in that tank very quickly. The jaw would be fine but you'd need a very secure top as they're definitely jumpers

That tank is way not large enough for a dwarf lion with tank mates, let alone by itself. Dragonets need a tank that is large enough to produce enough pods on its own to feed it, which is very difficult. They are a great example of a fish that should stay in the ocean.

Hate to tell you as you are already loosing 2 of your choices , but a dwarf wouldn't work in your tank either (Rec 70g) , I understand why you want one they are a pretty fish, maybe one day you'll upgrade to a bigger tank.

there are a lot of nice looking fish with tons of color that would work in your tank . and wouldn't break the bank , check the nano section at live aquara , there are a lot of really colorful fish in the nano category .

even though you need to swap a few fish out there are a lot more of fish that you can choose from.
