As far as the damsel, you could see if your LFS would take it back and give you store credit towards another fish?
Oh yeah. I totally forgot that I could do that.

You might be able to, you might not. It depends on your LFS's policies.

Here I go again you can put a clown in a 10 gallon tank if you are willing watch it be unhappy and end up living a very short lifespan. There is a LFS that is proof that a clown can live years and years one of theirs passed away after over 20 years and their other one is even older. They should be able to have a long and happy life in a tank that will suit their needs.

When I said anemone you can get something like a mini anemone or maybe one maxi mini anemone in a 10 gallon tank. If you do get one of those remember they do eat fish so take that into consideration. My rock anemone would be to big for a 10 gallon tank and it is still growing.

You know, I've seen so many arguments for the range of tanks an Occ. Clown can be in I've given up trying to keep track.

I think that I will bring the damsel back to the lfs and get a goby with some shrimp and some snails. I will also take a look at a light upgrade for later anemone
