I hate rules of thumb, but that's the only thing I can give you, since I am more inexperienced that you are.

 

ROT: 1 inch fish/30-50inches water surface area. Your tank, if I am not mistaken, is 12x12, then approx. 3-5 inches of fish. Of course this depends on the type of fish, metabolism, etc. Right now you would be fine, but down the road just the 2 adult clowns will fill your capacity.

It's actually 16x16x16 and i'll have a 5.5 refugium

and plan on taking back the urchin.
