I was hoping maybe just a fowler with 2 clownfish, either ocellaris or percula.

If i know these systems, they come with a built in skimmer and lighting. Care of these tanks would be no different than any other live rock & protein skimming system, which is about as easy as saltwater is every going to be. They have a nice slick design that hides the filter and lighting, which is a bonus if appearance is important.

I would approach this tank like any other marine tank, with a focus on live rock, live sand, and protein skimming over the short term and on alkalinity and calcium supplementation long term. It should be a good beginner project, especially with the realistic livestock goals you have.
