Looking for some fish suggestions for a 40 breeder that don't hide so much. The tank I bought I kept the green chromes, pink stripe goby, purple firefish and tailspot blend all of which hang out in the rocks for the most part. Thinking of 1-3 more fish that are a bit less rock dwellers.

There's always cardinals. If you want something different then bangaii's, I like the yellow-striped cardinal fish. I have four and two have paired off. The male regularly carries babies. They're always out but don't swim around constantly. Also, they're not know for jumping if you don't have a lid.

If you do have a lid, I like scissor tail gobies or bar gobies. They're fun because they hang around the top of the water and add movement to the take. I have a about 10 in my tank and they are swim around together. It funny because they all sleep in the same little hole in the rocks about the size of a golf ball. They pack in like sardines and they all face the same direction parallel with each other and they are on top of each other and beside each other. So at night, if you shine a light in it, you see the mass of heads staring back at you. They pack in like sardines and they all face the same direction parallel with each other.

Clownfish for sure. Also you could do a pygmy angel. I love my flame angel and the potters are also beautiful too. the angels can nip at coral but that does not always happen. Clowns and angels will swim around a lot for you.

Thanks! Cardinals have never been my favorite but I will look into the others!

These were my thoughts as well. I always love clowns and have always loved the small angels as well.
