Not my style. and lions generally don't mess with fish that are bigger than mouth size and I understand your not supposed to do tangs in small tanks like that but I know a few very very successful hobbyists that have tanks my size with tang. If they get to big you can always sell or trade. And u actually had a regal and bristol before redoing the tank for a reef

,,not me,never had a regal or bristol either
I'm aggressive all the way(just upgraded to a 280)..Never had a reef ,,never will

I never owned a lion,but do have an angler and they will eat things more than half there size(thought lions were the same)...
Not going to argue about tangs either,,but my thought is ,,i just never like thinking i have to catch and trade a fish because it outgrew my tank

No triggers, there's really no "easier" trigger...the majority get to 10-12 inches in length, some larger. And please don't underestimate a lions eating abilities... I accidentally cut a silverside too long for my volitan and by the time I dropped it into the water, my lion was moving for it....completely ate it..even though the tail stuck out his mouth. Imo you'd need atleast a 125 to house this combo

If you're going to get a lion the only option would be a Fuzzy or fu manchu. 55 G don't really give you the depth you need for larger predatory fish such volitons or big triggers. I agree with ftmmws a dwarf angel or 6 line wrasse. If you get a maroon clown buy them smaller cuz the get fast quick and in a hurry and can be very aggressive.
