So I get the Purepro kit that has all the inlet/spirovent goodies only to read "don't install this expansion tank with radiant use the red one" I did install to get it up and running, Should I get the red tank?

    Only if you wanna pay 3 times as much for it. "Radiant" tanks are recommend when there's more severe conditions such as: glycol, solar, etc.
    As long as your tank is sized sufficiently, and you don't have those conditions, you'll be OK.

    ...or if you have a system with non-barrier tubing.

    That's definitely one of those more severe conditions. In that scenario, I'd use one rated for potable and 180* water.
