Hi, im looking to get a interactive fish that doesn't have to stay out all night, but one that will stay up so i can have some nightlife in the tank, as all of my fish go away for the night

Cardinals are also nocturnal and active at night

Yeah, this is the problem you're most likely going to run into with nocturnal animals in aquariums - they're trained to feed during the day, even if they're nocturnal in the wild. If they don't eat during the day (when pretty much every aquarist feeds their fish), they'd starve. So, to get your fish acting nocturnal like they would in the wild, you'll likely have to start feeding them at night and readjust them to that nocturnal cycle rather than the diurnal cycle they've become accustomed to (autofeeders may be convenient for this).Ya I feel in home aquarium they have less need to hunt at night with us feeding during day
always wanted one but thought they got too big for a 55 gal, but i would love to get oneMarine betta is nocturnal and recommended for 55gal
i dose with copper and dont have a strong enough light for corals (found out the hard way lol)I've never had any fish that are active at night personally, but if you want some corals that come out at night, check out some NPS such as Tubastraea.
Yeah I googled some stuff and the pu apple fish popped up and I had never heard of it lolMy spotband butterflyfish and striped squirrelfish are always swimming around their (dark) tank late at night. The squirrelfish grows too big (and is too active) for a 55g, though.
What about the mysterious, ich-prone pineapple fish? It's nocturnal, and, according to Wikipedia, "popular with saltwater fish aquarists". On Mars, apparently, as I've never seen one offered for sale.
