LOL Which isnt the case at all. Most people will use common sense when adding rock and it wont be a tank full of rocks which then woudlnt allow much of any fish to be in that tank.

I agree two clowns should be in a 30g tank but the OP can get away with 2 in my opinion.
What's a OP. lol I'm new to this

I agree with the clowns but obviously it would depend on the species of clown I would go for occellaris in that sized tank as they stay very small IMO

For sure, I wouldnt put a large clown on there like maroons or anything. But your typical clown fish should be fine.

I just want 2 regular smaller sized ones. Any specific breed I should get? And should I get 2 males or 2 females or one of each? And I have a few hermits and 2 turbo snails. Will clowns eat hermits and snails?

Yep, you want regular oscellaris clowns, the orange and white ones.
They are fine with inverts so dont worry about that. No matter what you get size wise one will become the female and one the male, the larger the female.

That is very very interesting. Do they breed in captivity? And are they egg layers? Will they eat their babies?

Clownfish are egg layers and will care for their eggs.
