So the clown wouldn't be able to hold his own with a damselfish?

Depends. In a tank that size the damsel would probably bully it to death or at the least cause it to be unhappy and the fish will stress and have a short unhappy life. I personally do not like damsels at all. Every one I've ever had was a bully to everything shy of what could eat it.

Agreed, damsels are mean an aggressive.

I love the colors and swimming behavior but they are just cold hearted. I've never had any actually "kill" anything directly but the ones I had did run my clowns and even my foxface off everytime they got close to each other. Caught one in a fish trap and then found the other one I couldn't catch after weeks and weeks of trying wrapped in the tentacles of my Condylactis. Sad end for him but what goes around comes around. And this was in a 180 gallon

I had a 3 stripe damsel in a used tank w/ stock that I bought. I put clowns in, he would not focus on anything but them. They just ignored him. But I did remove him b/c he was so aggressive. I have Bengaii Cardinals in w/ my clowns. At first 1 Cardinal was kinda aggressive w/ the clown but now they're kinda friends, always around each other. But my clowns are very passive, kinda like puppies--curious about everything, out & about the most. 1 Cardinal hides all the time. They're nocturnal & kinda shy fish, I feel. In the store, the tanks don't have much for decos so once you get them home, they hide!

So would a cardinal work in a 10 gal?

Maybe
1 clown
1 cardinal
1 fire fish
