Same as other lions, will eat anything it can fit in its mouth.
They are a little harder to keep happy from memory and not as hardy.
I never kept one long term but I remember the one I was minding for someone it took me a while to get him to eat etc.
my radiata I had though, he took to food in no time and was bullet proof. Went through a few tank malfunctions.

Fu's are tricky, but a 29 works for them. Fuzzy's are really debatable, I've seen happy healthy ones live in 29g Biocubes.

The lionfish will eat all of that, especially the shrimp. The puffer will devour the shrimp as well. Likely the only 2 fish that would be safe from the lion are the puffer and the clown.

The lionfish also have an obscene bio load. You are definitely going to need a skimmer with one.

All of those will get eaten. Lions can eat things as big as they are.

If you want something that you can interact with then a skunk cleaner shrimp is without a doubt your best bet. They will happily crawl over your hands and pick at them. However the other fish you want don't fit in with that type of mentality.

Any eels are voracious eaters and will attack people (mmmm finger worms). Lionfish are poisonous and will sting people. Not to mention the eels, lionfish, and puffer will eat any inverts.
