Perching fish ideas?

Hey everyone, currently looking to add one more fish to the tank but I want this to be one that normally just perches on a rock and chills in plain sight. Not like a tiny goby that till be hiding all the time.
I currently have an
O.clown pair
melanarus wrasse,
green chromis,
purple firefish,
Peppermint shrimp,
Cleaner shrimp,
(Added that for compatibility sake)

I was thinking about the tailspot blenny, midas blenny, starry blenny or maybe the long nose hawkfish.

Please add your input.

Thanks!

I love the midas blenny! I want one so bad but I'm just scared it's not gonna get along with my firefish. I've read that they can't get along but I've also read that they can get along.

I have a Midas Blenny and a Purple Firefish. Absolutely no issues between the two of them.

Yes. Although, it was awhile ago so I can't remember the time between addition. I have noticed my Firefish occupies the lower part of the tank while the Midas Blenny occupies the upper part.
