I don't think so. In terms of water quality, that would be like putting discus in with goldfish. Moorish Idols can be very difficult to keep, even for the pros.

"Avoid putting Lionfish in a community tank with fish small enough to fit in their mouths. Otherwise, they will quickly rid your tank of the smaller fish. They will also go after some invertebrates so they are probably not a good choice for reef tanks"

So the lionfish might eat the coral beauty?

It depends on how big both the lionfish and the coral beauty are... If it's a small coral beauty and a larger lionfish, then I wouldn't be surprised if the lionfish ate it.
