2 clowns need more room than that. and 10 gallons will be a hard tank to keep parameters right. not ots of room for error.

If you don't want anything bigger than a 10 gallon select a fish that will live a happy healthy life in it. A 10 gallon is much to small for a clown and if you say am going to upgrade why waste money on a small tank now. A 30 gallon tank is actually more stable than a 10 gallon and much better suited for a clownfish or pair of clownfish. BTW I know of a few people whose clowns have lived over 20 years. Fake coral is fine no problem there.

Go for a 15 gal then to be on the safe side not much tank size difference really especially if you get a cube you could get a clown fish and maybe another small fish then and a few crabs etc

A tank that suits the fish is so much less stressful on the fish and the person that is in charge of tanking care of it.
