14 gallons is too small for two clowns, unfortunately. Now, a bio cube 29 might be ok. A 14 gallon is almost a pics system, and there are few fish you could keep in it. Smaller systems tend to be more difficult because decreased volume means chemistry changes occur more rapidly.

without a doubt go biocube. not only is it a simpler buy/setup, but it looks a heck of alot cleaner and better than a traditional 10g. i also have to disagree on it being too small for clowns. there are some subspecies of clowns youd want to stay away from, but an occellaris or 2 should do fine in a 14 biocube

like i said, they are more expensive upfront, however thats the only price youll have to pay... whereas t5 is cheaper upfront but you pay more every 10-12 months that you are using it

Clowns in a 14 biocube is a matter of contention. Some say its fine, some say its bad, some say it's ok with certain provisions. I tend to err on the side of caution with my fish. This is not a slam on those who feel otherwise, but there is some incidental (not scientifically experimented) research indicating that fish can be physically damaged by too confined a space through skeletal stunting and deformation. Remember that these are animals that evolved in millions of gallons.
