Are you asking in general if two clowns will be okay in the 13.5? Because it doesn't sounds like your tank is up yet and cycled
never started a tank with live rock? insta cycled .

Black storms are ocellaris, I believe. 13.5 gallons seems pretty small for a pair of clowns to me, although I know people keep clowns in small tanks. A 20 Long would be 30" long and better, or a 29 gallon would the same footprint as a 20L but taller, but it's up to you.

Will it just be the clown pair?

I won't comment on cycling but will the clowns. If you are going to add 2 at once and they are not a bonded pair I would get the largest you can find and the smallest and hope one is female and one male. Better yet add one and let it become female if it isn't then add a small male later. The later is how I prefer to do it unless they are already bonded.

never started a tank with live rock? insta cycled now keep on topic and lets stop being stupid pls guys if you don't know what you are talking about lets pls stop commenting
Live rock doesn’t change anything with a cycle… I have started many tanks with it and always face Atleast a mini cycle. The only way I’ve been able to stop a mini cycle is through adding bacteria from bottles. If I didn’t do that I faced a long (2-3 week) cycle period.

Although when i ordered liverock from masterfisch i put it straight into the tank and added fish and everything was fine i think i waited a week cause it was saying my ammonia was 8ppm which i think was wrong cause a crab that came with the rock was fine
