Lions will eat anything that will fit in their mouth so depends on size of both

If you only had the tank a few weeks, it's probably not cycled, and is way too early to put corals in. Tell him to slow down. Don't add anything more until you get the tank squared away. Fish don't die from nothing. There was probably an ammonia spike from all the new additions.
The lion is going to swallow the clown, and as stated, whatever else it can fit in it's mouth. I don't think that's what happened to the starfish however. Can you take a picture of the starfish?

No the star was starving before you bought it. You probably didn't acclimate it long enough and it has started to die. Blue starfish are linckias which don't last long in captivity. And yes blue hippo tangs get over a foot, a 55 is nowhere big enough

That means he broke it down before the move and reassembled once at your house you will still have a small cycle even if he did everything right, had he ever moved a tank before? Did he use new sand or rinse the old? How mucb of the old water did he use?

You guys need a test kit for yourselves and save the trip to petco, they use the strips and those are useless, you need a marine/reef specific test kit, I suggest the API master kit.

What equipment is he running on the tank? Hob? Wet dry Sump? Refugium sump? Canister filter?
