No more clowns. They will all fight once pairs form. Blennies, gobies, basletts, mostly small fish would work with the clowns.

What type of powerhead? Like how many gph? They should be fine unless it is something insane. I have over 800 gph in my 20 between all my powerheads and none of my fish have trouble even my smaller clown.

I would say that is a little much for such a small tank. I'd probably get a smaller one like 425-500 gph if the tank is only fowlr.

They don't need that much flow. Softies and lps will be torn apart by that much flow.
