It shouldn't be that difficult to tell a Dwarf Lionfish from the other species. They have a unique appearance. Keep in mind, even the "Dwarf" get to be 6'' in size, which is a pretty big fish. You will need to keep its tank mates large enough not to be eaten. Most Gobies won' t be an option!
I would not suggest keeping a Puffer and Lionfish together in a 65 gallon tank. The sheer waste produced would be excessive, plus most Puffers need larger aquariums. You could probably do one of the Toby puffers, such as the Valentini Puffer.
