Do you know the pH of the water that will be used in the 30 gallon?
Just bouncing ideas without knowing the pH or your particular likes....(but considering tank size)...If I am correct hex tanks are generally along the lines of a tall tank, correct? If so, that means no active swimmers, so rainbows are out.
How to you feel about gourami? IF your water parameters are right for them, a 30 gallon with a bunch of Sparkling gourami would look awesome!
Other 30 gal fish... guppy, platy, neon tetra, cardinal tetra, black neon tetra, mollies, cories, german blue ram, yellow lab cichlids, kuhli loaches... of course not all of these can be housed together due to personalities and water parameter needs such as pH and temps, as well as water hardness/softness and such.
Once you have your water parameters I can get a more exact list matching what can be kept.
Good Luck with your new smaller tank!!! And welcome to TFK!!!
