Mid to Top Swimmer wanted

Any fish suggestions that swim at the mid level to top level of the tank?

I have a 105 gallon. Pistol Shrimp Goby stay at the bottom, Coral Beauty stays at the bottom and moves up to the mid level of the tank. Royal Gramma stays bottom occasionaly mid level. So any peaceful suggestions on a top layer of the tank swimmer?

I am sure I will add 2 clowns when I see the right ones but looking for another addition. tank length is only 4 feet so I know most tangs are out.

Chromis, but many here have differing opinions on these guys. I have three and love them.

Cardinals are another that come to mind. They can be creepy cause they really don't swim, they hover.

+1 to both of these - I have 5 lemon chromis (we'll see how many I have a year from now) and 3 banggai cards.

I like the way my PJ cardinals hang out at the top. Plus they a fun to show off to old and young alike. The idea is a fish in their pajamas .....
