My Reddit account is just fish pictures and I keep many different natives. If you want to see a couple generic setups, I’ve linked the account
Shiners/dace are usually pretty easy and there are tons of colorful species. They usually keep well with the smaller native killifish, Enneacanthus sunfish, and the two small Lepomis sunfish species (dollar / orangespotted).
Darters are also awesome but are sometimes challenging to feed in a community tank.
If you wanted to do a New England themed tank, I believe banded sunfish, a couple native killifish (banded and blackline) and swamp darters are local to the area. There’s no doubt a New England local out there somewhere who could tell you a lot more than I could.
