names of some active fish? thanks

Hi,

I have a 55 gallon tank and I am looking for some more peaceful fish that are active and like to swim through rock! If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

I am new to the hobby this forum has helped me a lot!

As for the swimming through the rocks and the liveliness, I would have to say that a Sixline Wrasse would be your best bet.

Alot of the smaller species of wrasse would be a great choice. Heres a really useful link. Hope this helps!

Anything that can fit in a 55 (says in the info) should be good. GL!!!!!!!!!

What about Clown Gobies? They don't really swim, but they are peaceful and perch on the rocks.

They are really cute too!

I had a six line wrasse that was a big bully. You can look into dwarf Angels too.

My Cherub Pygmy Angel is extremely active and isn't aggressive at all.
