In order to cycle the tank you have to add a source of ammonia. Usually a piece of shrimp, fish food, or ammonia itself. By just letting it sit for 3 weeks you're not jump starting the cycle. Don't add anything living to your tank. Get a piece of shrimp and put it in there, let it break down and test your water for ammonia, nitrite,and nitrate.
You've been losing clowns because your tank isn't properly cycled.
When it is cycled, make sure to add only fish that are suitable for your tank.
While its cycling have a look here and make a list of maybe 3 fish you'd like.
