As an aside- I do not recommend adding either cyps or paracyps to your current set up. Paracyps might survive, but they are best kept in groups of at least six and in tanks 40 gallons and larger, particularly if other species are present. With your current stocking list, you may consider investing in a 40g long (48") tank sooner rather than later, and use it for xenos, julies, and paracyps, leaving your 20g for the multies and a singleton brichardi.

If you are looking for action through the middle of the tank, get more of the good species you already have- a good stocking list would be 5 L. multifaciatus with the single brichardi. If you had smaller julie species (transcriptus or ornatus), they would do well as a group in there, too.

Without providing suitable mates and territory for any of your fish, you are not going to get the full activity and use of the whole tank.
