puffer fish ate lionfish fin?

my fish are not aggressive towards eachother. although my fish (niger trigger, blue spotted puffer) are considered finbiters, they never bite one another. my puffer fish, while trying to eat food, missed and nibbled one of those long fin tentacle things off my lionfish. he proceeded to swallow the 2 inch fin whole. is that bad for him? it was not one of his top spines though.

    LOL! Most fish will eat other fish, especially once they 'taste' each other. He'll be OK.
