Get some Powerheads or a gyre in their and they will love it. Also for a mixed reef eventually your going to need a better light but for right now the orbit should do fine
I actually got a powerhead before I got my fish. I thought more water water movement in my tank would be better for it.
My one clown loves it! I often see him ( I want to say he rides the current that it makes in my tank) He lets the current take him a bit then he swims back and does it again. Gets bored swims around and then has back at it lol He is so funny like that. He is quite a character lol

Welcome! Congrats on the new tank, it's always nice to splurge on yourself - especially when it comes to things like this. Can't wait to watch your tank progress!
Aww Thank you so much !!! Today I added an awesome sea cucumber who I was a bit worried about but now that the lights are down he seems very comfortable! I have taken so many pictures of him already lol
