What type of an environment does a lion fish need? OK i will try to get moolight but i wont try overly hard will be sure to keep following your advice and Thanks for all the help And links once again

Ill keep asking the questions as they come to me if that's OK with you... and im sure there are many more to come as this wonderful project progresses
Lion fish evironment, can be in a community tank or aggresive tank. You just have to have fish big enough that they won't fit in his mough, or he will eat them. And again, it would all depend on which Lion fish you get as to what size tank you would need.
These are just fish for ideas on what you can keep with your Clowns

That lamp that I linked to you appeared to be the same Double Ended socket double ended lamp that you posted, but you will like the 14k much, much better than the 10k.
As for the Protein Skimmer, I don't really know how good it is, I just looked through your e-bay to find similar looking skimmers, that I thought would work like the Reef Octopus and such. Can't really give yo uany review on them.
Also, that RO uinit does not come with a DI Canister on it, I would recommend either getting an add on or looking for another unit that has one on it.

Thanks again Ill look into what type of lionfish and then do some further research but for now im sticking to clownfish.. ill keep 2 in the begging and slowly bring it up to 4 after a whaile and then ill add the anemones. What are some easy corals and or polyps that i can keep under my light? is my light suitable for any coral? and are polyps easier or something else? Is a 30 gallon usually OK for a lion fish or are there too many types of lionfish to tell?
Im Bombarding you with questions I hope its fine with you

OK well the skimmer appears pretty good... So do u think i should buy it? OK thanks for letting me know the 14000k looks better, ill get that lamp then And ill try that socket.. if it doesn't it ill buy another one.. Its not like they are super expensive or anything What does the DI canister do again? Is it really needed? I will buy one if it is best for my fish but there are Many RO filters that say they make perfect water for Marine aquariums and do not list this DI Canister.. So just curios.

With that light you can keep any coral you wanted. Most Softies or Leathers are easy to care for, and Zoas, Button Polyps, are easy to care for. Some LPS would be ok too.

As for the skimmer, I can't really say wether the one you posted is any better or worse than the one that I posted, I have no idea. DI canister should be used in a Reef tank, this helps remove up to 99.8% of all impurites in the water, which is a good thing. Its called a Deionize canister.

If you already have a system then have a look here or here or here.

I bought my system off the first company and then added the DI unit off the second one.

Third link is from ebay.de.
