If you think you'll eventually go reef, I'd seriously consider skipping the lionfish all together and populate from the start with reef friendly fish and inverts.

Clowns are good.

Gobies, blennies, some wrasses, cardinals to name some of my smaller favorites.

BUT any ideas for a CUC...sorry i have some questions but you can only learn so much from books and online sites and i see everyone is very helpful here.
Lionfish really aren't that messy when they eat, because they like to swallow thier prey whole. It's the fish that like to thrash thier prey to pieces that make a real mess...eels are a good example.

Lionfish are messy , though, in the fact that , like most carnivores , they put out alot of waste.
