fish with personality for 30gal?

i would like anybody's advice for a good fish with a lot of personality that i could build my 30 gal around. I have a pen-plax canister filter (rated for 65gal) and i'm pretty flexible on the other water parameters. The fish that i don't want are any puffers or cichlid(i've kept both before and i want to try something new) the only one i've been able to find is a dojo/weather loach. so if anybody has any suggestions they'd be appreciated very much

I have 3 dojo loaches.
These are cold water fish. Where you thinking about a tropical heated tank, or cold water tank?

30g, 5 danio, glwofish, 5-6 cardinals, betta, 2-3 yo-yo loaches, dwarf gourami(powderblue) risk with the gourami but alot of folks have good luck! You can even try a honey and a powder blue.Group of small rianbows like furcata or
signifier, NO angels here. This would be an active and colroful tank. If you like unusuals the hillstream loach reallt keeps the glass clean and they're gorgeous gets 2.5".

ok the only fish said so far that i would consider to have personality is a dojo loach. tetras have 0 personaliies. sorry catfish but thats a community tank. I was thinking something with personality! an oscar has lots of personality, but is too large for a 30.

and i don't really care about temperature. if i found a fish that i liked i would base the aquarium around it

My dojos are very entertaining to watch. Playful and curious. Always in the way during water changes.
The only other fish that I have with "personality" that are not cichlids would be my yoyo loaches and tiger barbs.
