Yes, you will need the light that I previously posted. At least, for an Anemone.

So all these guys would be ok together? I am just worried about the lion fish if it would eat the other fish? My aunt and uncle had a lion in with 2 clowns, some white and black striped fish, and a couple others, and he never ate anyone so lol

nothing is really mandatory in this hobby. A skimmer is one of the easiest ways to export organics and because of that they are commonly used. You sure what he has is not a hang on skimmer?

Also I wouldn't put a lionfish in with fish small enough to be lunch. To me lions scream species tank (ie only lions) this would actually make for a cool medium/small setup imo.

Mandatory, no. Highly recommended, yes. Your water quality will go to crap in a hurry without one in a 55g tank, and its hard to keep the prarameters in good shape without it.
