For 2 clowns you will need at least a 75 liter tank. 16 is really to small for most saltwater fish.

Really it is to small for any fish. You could maybe do one tiny goby but that's it.

You cannot put clowns in a 4g tank, they are way too big and grow quickly.

I would put a clown goby and inverts in it if it were me. Get a nice light and you can put corals in as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just because people do it does not make it right.

^ I agree!
Just because people do it, doesn't make it right. I like to think they do it, not to be cruel; but because they are just misinformed or unknowing

Is that a damsel already in it? If so I'd rehome it and get a clown goby or neon goby.
