a dwarf will grow to about 5-6 inches... You could get away with it in a 29 I believe, but he'll have to be the only fish in the tank as anything smaller than him will get eaten.... Considering you are moving soon, I'd wait until after you move... the least amount of handling you have to do with a lionfish, the better off you are...

that'll work.... use a little bit of CC on the bottom.... fish get spooked by their reflection and lionfish like to sit on the substrate for long periods of the day.... The only time they are really active is when they are hunting...

I know when mine wants to be fed cause he's swimming back and forth in the tank, stalking my huma trigger... :)
