You can get a dwarf lion or even a full size one as long as you have fish large enough to not be eaten. They don't eat corals.

If its a fu man chu you want, id hold off. Although small enough, they are prob the hardest lion to keep. I've heard of some horror stories

I was looking at some of the dwarfs and even considered the Fu man Chu. But that would mean anything that could fit in its mouth is in trouble. Meaning firfish cleaner shrimp etc. I may do this one as a reef and try an talk the wife into a smaller one for the lionfish.
