Fish that swim mid to top of the tank?

Have 2 clowns 2 bangai cardinals, fire fish and a goby. Want something that's more of an active swimmer these just seem to hang out in the rocks

Two things first to answer your question hatchet fish swim literal on the surface. But how big Is your tank and are you talking about clown loaches?

The poster is asking about saltwater fish not freshwater. Have you looked into chromis? I have blue green chromis that are out at the top a lot.

I might have missed something here but clown fish do not need to be kept in groups of 5.
