33 Gallons would not appropriate for lion fish or a box fish. Box fish alone need very large tanks, 180 gallons +.

The tank is most likely a 40 gal tank. It is not large enough for box fish. Even the smallest, not commonly available species need a tank of over 100 gallons at maturity.

This would be a good place to get some ideas on fish appropriate for a 40 gallon tank.
