On a tank of that size it may be hard. I would suggest a Galaxy Light ( or this light: I think the Galaxy is 18W, and I am unsure of the second.

That tank is too small for even 1 clown of any specie. You can only keep 1 very, very small fish in there (Clown Gobies, Green Banded Goby, Neon Blue Goby, etc).

You should be able to grow corals in that tank with those lights. I would use the LED light personaly for best growth.
