A lionfish will absolutely eat the other fish, and a fu Manchu is very tricky. If you decide to try a lion, go with a zebra or fuzzy.

The reason for wanting a fu Manchu is due to them needing a minimum of 30 gallons

Both fuzzy's and zebras work in a 40.

the horseshoe crab will most likely starve in a 40g
I myself would be iffy on a lion in 40g
are you looking for preditorial or just mellow fish

Well he seems to be very much alive in my tank as they eat worms and my tank is full of them and I'm looking for pretty, mellow fish. Somewhere between 20-30$
