I think hatchetfish of all types are brilliant and interesting. You could also look into archerfish if you're willing to go brackish.

If you want a brackish tank, freshwater soles are pretty cool fish, and native to Australia too. Maybe your lfs has some.

RIP fire eel
why did you think it was a good idea to keep going over the top of the tank
when you realized you couldn't breathe outside water?
