Blennies, gobies, firefish, cardinals, bassletts, etc... There's a good number of small fish you could do with the clowns

Honesty, clowns are built up to be a lot better then they are. They can be really mean. I can't stick my hand in my tank without getting bitten.

Stick with Occelaris or Perculas for a 20.

Skimmer not needed in such a small tank but only if you do your water changes like you are supposed to.

A skimmer wouldnt be a bad thing, just not in my opinion a must have. But here is a good skimmer for ya:

Hydor Koralia Nano/Slim-Skim Internal Protein Skimmer

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