If you are talking about making this ten gallon tank a main tank I would not put Macro in it. It would in no time over run your tank.. Also Clowns do not eat macro algea.

Yeah.. i agree with Mike. I had a 4ft 55G tank and caulerpa that started out as a couple strands took over half the tank in less than 2 months. Ridiculous.

Also, if you were doing a half and half tank... on a 10G.. that would only leave 5G for fish. I'd say about the only fish you could put in 5G is a clown goby. Definitely not a clownfish.
