Any white firm fish will work, you could even use shrimp. Cut fish into 1/4" to 1/2" cubes, place in lime and lemon juice with a health pinch of Kosher salt for at least 1/2 hour. 

While fish is curing in juice cut up your other ingredients into the same size pieces, except avocado. Once fish has cured to your liking, combine diced fruits and vegetables and allow to marinate for another 1/2 hour. 

To plate, scoop the ceviche out of the lime lemon mixture straining off most of the liquid. Serve with sliced avocado and corn chips.
