I wouldn't put any clowns in a 10G. A lot of places say 30G minimum, and they do get to be about 3". Maybe one might be ok in a 10G, but personally i would skip it. Neon gobies and clown gobies would do nice in a 10G. As well as a firefish.

I have an 8 gallon that I keep a small blue damsel and an emerald crab in. I have a larger tank that I will put the damsel in when it gets to big then I will probably get a small goby and pistol shrimp.

This is a guide for nano fish lgreen's Ultimate Guide To Nano Fish - Nano-Reef.com Forums I don't agree to all the fish in the size tank they recommend.but it is a good start to researching.

The more water movement you have the less problems with algae you will have.

Don't always trust the LFS I am lucky I have 4 in the area that is really very good.

as much as will fit. 1.5-2 lbs per g is good.

Some gobys like to have a pistol shrimp. Not all goby's are 100% reef safe either.

I know the watchman and the high fin goby but the high fin will be get to big for your tank
These links will give you some idea what might be available
FreshMarine.com - Gobies - Saltwater Gobies - Banded Goby - Clown Goby - Gold Neon Gobies - Purple TileFish Goby - Buy Gobies Now and Save!
Live Aquaria
Some places sell them as pairs as well. One thing you need to make sure of is your rock work is very stable and sitting maybe on a piece of egg crate. They both like to burrow.

High Fin's stay pretty small imo. I had S. nematodes in my 40L with a Randalls pistol and he was fine...well till he went carpet surfing. I'd say though that they're ideal for little tanks as thet stay small at 2" or so and are pretty sedentary. Make sure you have a lid though.
