They should be alright together, but seahorses tend to be slow eaters so you have to make sure your clowns don't eat everything before they get there share.

They only issue with more and more food is more fish waste as a result but that could. I have a friend that has a few horses and he has a mason jar half dug into his sand bed and he will spray some of the brine there for the horses to find while the other fish eat.

Wouldn't recommend seahorses, especially being a beginner. Not saying it can't be done, but even experienced hobbyists have a hard time keeping them alive. Having the clowns in there with the seahorse will give the seahorse a slim chance to get food b/c they are such slow eaters and eat constantly throughout the day and not just once a day or every few days. That's why they are recommended to be kept in a species only tank or with pipefish. They don't do well with competition basically and they require stable conditions (temp, pH, nitrate, etc. can't fluctuate a lot). Would recommend keeping fish and possible some corals if you want and maybe in the future getting seahorses if you are willing to do the maintenance, spend extra time feeding, etc.

Seahorse should only be kept with seahorses or with pipefish. Otherwise they will starve to death. Clowns are super fast and the seahorse doesn't stand a chance of getting food in that tank. That's why seahorse are usually in tank by themselves when you go to aquariums.
