Blue-Finned Killies Lucania goodei are less aggressive than American Flag Fish, and are found in similar habitats, and there are a couple of brackish/marine US natives (the "Rainwater Killie" won't tolerate rainwater, and likes it salty! Just goes to show how useless common names are).
The only problem is that those and the AFFs are not true tropicals but will much prefer a tank that changes temperature with the seasons - its one reason why AFFs are aggressive, in a tropical tank its summer all the time and they're constantly in breeding mode. Mine are defintely much more relaxed now its a bit cooler.
