Fish Suggestion

I need a fish that will NOT spend it's time on the bottom of the tank swimming among the rocks.

Can anyone suggest a reef safe fish that will spend most of its time hanging outside the rocks and in the water column?

I currently have a couple corals, two skunk cleaner shrimp, a spotted mandarin, and a false clown in my 72 gal reef.

I have a cute little red firefish that just loves hanging in the front area of the tank....he rarely hides...sometimes they come in pairs, a purple and a red firefish...nice combo.

Just a suggestion.

Good luck.

chromis of course will stay out as well. I had a firefish(before he superman jumped out of my tank) and he stayed out 90% of the time.

Most of the tang family will stay out in the open as well.
