For 30g, you can do a dwarf lion, but that'll really be the only fish you can put in there. Any other fish that is appropriate for that size tank will probably get eaten by the lion. :/
, you can use any light you want. It's only for corals that you need a certain amount of light.
You'll also need:
Access to RO
water and buckets
Test kits for ammo, nitrite, nitrate
Sand (unless you go barebottom)
Some rock for the lion to perch on
Would suggest skimmer for lion, they're messy
Personally, I would spray paint the back before you fill the tank, looks a lot better and hides the cords and stuff.
Research a lot. Read lots of threads on this forum, google SW
tanks and read. Better to educate yourself so you don't make any mistakes.
