Any Ideas for a Florida Native Tank 30 Gallon Tank?

I am set on stocking some flag fish, but I am otherwise open to suggestions! (also, how many flag fish would you recommend keeping together?)

    10 gallons per fish = 3 fish

    take back any aggressive ones, add a cleaner fish/snails

    a cannister filter is recommended

    I bought 6 Florida flag fish more than a year ago.  3 of them were gone in 2-3 months.   The remaining 2 females and 1 male are amazing, never aggressive, always active, the male shows breeding colors even though my substrate is not dark.  3 seems to be the magic number for me, but this is only a one time experience.

    As for fish from Florida, I have seen beautiful pictures of pygmy sunfish on line, but I have no idea how to care for them or if they should even be considered as an aquarium pet.
