My tank needs a change.

I have a fairly new 75g brackish tank and it's been cycled for about a month. Current residents are 1 freshwater flounder only about 1", 2-3 bumblebee gobies (those guys get hard to find in 75g), and 1 Dragon/Violet Goby. All my fish hide! I enjoy the occasional bbg darting around and the dragon comes out about once a night, but I need fish that will actually swim around. Thinking about setting up a tank for the bbg and adding what my lfs called a marble moray eel, but I believe it is a Gymnothorax tile. I know he will most likely hide also, but what fish would be compatible that would actually swim around?

I want to get some archers and a columbian shark. But the archers get big, too big. I've yet to come across the Smaller archer species for sale.

I'm not crazy about mollies. I was thinking about 3 of the smaller archers(Toxotes microlepis) if i can find them for sale, and 1-2 comlumbian sharks.

My LFS has "Black-Finned Sharks". Doing some research now but I'm thinking they may be the same as the Columbian Shark. They sure do look the same.

Yes... I do believe they are. I should have 2 of them this weekend! Of course it'll be a while of acclimating before I can get them to the 75g.
