OK I've been lookin into getting a marine setup. I am COMPLETELY new to this. It would be my first time. I have heard clownfish are fairly hardy and its good cause I llove them to death. They are amazingly beautiful. If I did get a tank chances are it would be 20-30 gallons. How many clown fish would u say I could get(fish only tank, no live coral) and also can someone suggest some other species thats great forbeginners and goes good with the clown? Or should I just get some clowns to begin with? Play it safe so I don't have to do mass genocide if I mess something up?

Start with a 29-30 gallon minimum and yes, providing you do your research and cycle your tank properly in advance, captive raised Clownfish are a great choice. Two or three small fish would be plenty, other choices would include hawkfishes, cardinals, certain wrasses or blennies. Be sure to read my two stickies at the top of this forum for species to avoid and common myths about marine aquariums.
