They may grow back, if the trigger is removed and the lion is left in peace, however you must pay close attention for a bacterial infection and treat with an antibiotic if necessary. In a predator tank, I can almost guarantee there will be an infection, the water quality will see to that.

The lion is about 4 1/2 inches long and still has about 1 to 2 inches of fins left. I also have a lunar wrasse could it have been him?

Will my trigger get sick from eating his fins?

Your Trigger shouldn't get sick from eating fins. Triggers are very aggressive. If I were you, I would work out a deal with your LFS to exchange your Trigger for another non agressive fish.
