Question can I have these in the same tank

I have two snowflake eels, two domino damsels, one coral beauty, and one pearl scale butterfly fish can all of these fish go in a tank with a anemone. I also am thinking about getting a dwarf lionfish

What size tank are we talkin about? I don't see why they would not all get along, with the exception of the Domino Damsels. I know you think they are cool, but just wait. They will become nasty critters. But until then, enjoy.

Cool my tank

my tank is a 55 gallon but I'm hoping that the lion fish eats my dominos when I get him because I don't really like them and the reason i bought them was to cycle my tank faster and now
thanks for replying

light???

why does light matter about anemones. I know that you need better light with corals but does it really matter with them.

anemones are inverts that house zooxanthellae like corals do. ( there are exceptions to both but these require even more attention )
bascially this algae (zooxanthellae) that grows in good lighting will be feeding your specimen. i would also suggest small food portions weekly-biweekly (with even more frequent if it doesnt contain zooxanthellae.)
in addition, nems will need proper alk, cal and mag levels and proper flow. basically they require a reef enviroment.

maybe we should start with what kind were you interested in?

Carpet Nems are more prone to snack on fish than the other Nems, yes. But, keep them well fed, and you'll have no issues.
