My advice to you is to not start with a 10g it will cause you to many headaches and will probably make you leave the hobby or end up buying things all over again. Sw
tanks are difficult when small. Get a 25-29g you will be much happier and life will be a lot easier. You will be able to buy a few more fish because not many fish are happy in 10g. I you decide to do this I can be a lot of help because I entered the saltwater hobby with a 25g tank. Feel free to message me or ask any questions in this thread and I will be happy to give my input. But 95% of people will tell you not o start small because its a lot of maitnece and requires a better knowledge of algae matinence and water conditions then people have when they start the hobby. You can read all you want but you will make mistakes at first and reversing mistakes in a 10g is difficult.
Clowns will need at least 20g tank as well. I tried having a pair in a 10g and they were always so lethargic.
