Alright, thanks everyone for the advice.
I am going to Quebec City this weekend, but next week I am going to bring my freshwater fish to the LFS and order all of the equipment.
I'm getting the ASM skimmer for sure.
The green chromis are definitely off the list then.

As for the sump: If my protein skimmer and other equipment are all in the sump (10 gallon). How could I quarantine them? If I put them in the 'sump', they would still be a a part of the whole system. And if I separated the tank and the sump as a quarantine tank, until all of my fish were introduced, where would I put the protein skimmer and other equipment?
Also, is it necessary to have lights on the sump? I don't really mind if there is no coralline algae in the sump, because it's a sump :P.
As far as lighting goes for the main tank, do I need night lights or can I just turn the lights off at night, since I don't have any corals. The lighting I have now on the 29 gallon is only about 17 watts. The lights on the 10 gallon have as high as 50 watts.

if you have no corals lights are only for displaying fish in the display tank so i would go with little lights to keep algae to a minimum. no need for lights in sump
