Should I get a lion fish

I have a 125 gallon saltwater with around 10 damsels that are around 1 1/2 inches and a snowflake eel. Would a lion fish Kill/eat my damsels?

Thanks and even if they have places to hide and stuff cause I have a friend that he has a 15 inch lion fish with damsels so I figured if I get one as big as 3-5" then it should be good

The snowflake will be fine but ya damsels are the worst fish on the market imo (that includes FW, brackish, and SW) haha there are some larger species that have been known to frequently attack divers lol.
