No on 3 clowns, they will fight. A pair both being the same species. I would suggest a pair and some small bottom feeders, like the neon goby. You could keep two or three neon goby fish, they have a very small bioload and nice color.

You could make a decent fowlr tank, maybe keep a chocolate chip star and some snails and hermits. A cleaner shrimp would probably work too.

What kind of lighting do you have in this 33 gallon, and what kind of filtration?

Well, lighting depends entirely on what you intend to keep. If you are going with a fowlr then a high efficiency t5 strip with two bulbs would be cheap, cheap to maintain and best of all sufficient for just fish. If you want corals then you will need some stronger lights. Ideally you would set up a sump for the.tank, but with smaller tanks it isn't always feasible. I had a magnum250 canister on my first tank, but the nitrates stayed high so I wouldnt recommend it. You may wanna look into some hob systems.

Substrate is strictly personal, but I like sand, it looks natural. Sw tanks with gravel tend to look like fw tanks.

I would look into a hang on system, post a question in the forum separate from this asking about filtration for a 30 gallon fowlr because I couldn't help you with that as I haven't kept them. I have a wet dry sump now and I kept a canister. I wouldn't recommend the canister for sw.

I am assuming this tank is not drilled though, I wouldn't imagine it is being a 33 gallon. You can create a sump for it that could be concealed in the stand and hang the inlet on the back.
