Clowns will outgrow a 10g. Usually not best to keep them in anything less than a 20g. If you did get a clown i wouldn't recommend anything other than an oscellaris clown and only 1.

I think that is a very good interesting combo id get a smaller goby such as a yellow watchman perhaps or of similar size. Ive always wanted to try this matchup myself but havnt gotten the chance yet. Tiger pistols are known to pair up more successfully than other species of pistol also.

Pair of clowns or even an small bta with them. Just don't add anything that will eat the very life you are trying to grow.

Do not put a pair of clowns in a 10g, just putting one oscelleris in is pushing it but 2 is way overboard. Stay with a 2-3 small fish, check out liveaquaria.com they have a section dedicated to nano fish so you can look at what is suitable and decide what you like. Once you know what fish you like from there post it here and we can help narrow down the field.
