I personally wouldn't mix species in a small tank. It's going to be cramped with just one or two fish once they are adults. Remember even a clown is recommended to have 30 gal worth of space and they aren't even big swimmers.

I would go for one (maybe two if they are some kind of pair) and leave it at that.

How much LR? Is it cured? I'm sure you know, but make sure you check your levels and wait a couple weeks after adding the LR beofre adding livestock. Also, please post some pics...I love to see tanks in progress. Lando

also if i get that 55 which i probaly will, my attention will turn to that tank and only that tank, so my 15 may sit for a while with nothing in it, or i can teach my brothers how to care for that tank and they can get a clown or two. but i am the superintendant of tanks in my house and some of my friends houses too.

I would add the LR before you get any fish. The die off from the LR may cause a cycle which could stress the fish.
good luck....
