Wow. You are in a really difficult situation, primarily because you made a mistake that is no longer correctable. You put a Lionfish into the display tank before it was eating dried foods. Honestly, if you can't use a Q, you can't medicate the display, and the fish won't eat dried foods to soak in garlic, I have no other treatment options.
I would attempt to soak freeze dried krill in a garlic supplement and try your best to get the Lionfish eating.
First, before you do anything, lets see some pics of what you are looking at.
