Ammonia should be zero, it is nitrate that should be kept under 20 but 10 is preferred/better.

Ammonia is caustic to fish it burns there gills and makes it hard for them to breathe Once the gills are burnt they stay scared. Ideally there's o ammonia in the tank I run a small HOB filled with poly-fill on my sump this way i can seed my QT when needed and avoid any cycle.

I would do either the clowns or the anthias but not both simply because the clowns can and will bully other fish Id QT the 3 DA's first then the clowns Keep a close eye on your parameters test at least every other day. You can safely QT 5-10 SMALL fish in a 10 but you will have to do PWC's daily The more pieces of PVC the better.

Better to take it slow and safe, it'll avoid water quality issues and save you a headache.
