I say no angels they are very active swimmers. My clowns and blenny both eat out of my hand. If you really want an oddball fish for the tank get an angler. You couldn't have shrimp or other fish but anglers are awesome.

Dwarf Lion is pushing it, but it can be done. Engineers get to be 1'+

LiveAquaria says at least 50 gallons for dwarf lionfish. They can get up to 7 inches long. I would say no in a 29 gallon. That is way too much fish for a small tank. And anything else you put in would become food for it.

Ok I've read in a lot of places that as long as it is fed well that they will leave other fish alone what about an engineer goby

No. It couldn't even turn around comfortably.
Lion would have to be only fish.

The only other fish you'll put in a 29 gallon tank are going to be small. Eventually the lion (which I still would not put in that tank) would eat them. There is no such thing as a full lionfish. Mine can eat until it looks like his stomach will explode. Also, even if it takes a while for the lion to eat them, they'll likely die or get sick from stress which could wipe out the entire tank. I would look at fish that are appropriate for that size tank.
