Whatever you do, do not get a mandarin. They require tons of copepods which can only be supplied by a tank usually over 2 years old an probably bigger than 15 gallons. As for the sixline it should be fine. What kind of clown do you have?

I think they should be fine. Just don't overstock your tank. The false perc and sixline should probably be it for fish in a 15 gallon if you want to keep nitrates under control.
