Would a leaf scorpionfish eat the longnose hawkfish and puffer?

A leaf scorp would be fine as long as they aren't super big to start, they have relatively small mouths, and potential food needs to fit in thier mouth. The saddle valrntini usually makes a good tank mate, not nippy as the other puffer I mentioned. Leaf scorps are challenging to feed and usually don't live long on a dead only diet. You can find info on many of the fish you've been mentioning by clicking my name and "find all threads".

Clown gobies yes, but as long as properly sized not gobies like a watchman and similar. Same with clowns, they just need to be too large to eat from the beginning, the leaf scorp does grow slowly so you don't have to worry about them getting bigger and eating them at a later date.
