I had black skirt tetras in a 55gal that were tight schoolers.
Yeah, they're pretty cool schooling, but not too sure if they are tight as rummy. They're more like serpae tetra

Probably bigger fish than you want, but my Buenos Aires Tetras school every bit as tightly (if not more) than the rummies in the vid. They are a flattened, deep bodied tetra that is mostly flashy aluminium silver with red and black accents. (sorry for the bad pic)
Thanks for the compliment. Those are nice tetras, yeah, a little be big for me. I'll consider them for my 300g next time.
I can vouch that Bloodfins school TIGHT and are always on the move. Very cool fish.
Hmmmmm, they are pretty tight. The might close to rummy.
+1 Rummy's by far, are the best!
Rummy nose tetras are my favorite. They school so much more tightly than the neons I had before my angels picked them off one at a time over like a year. Also much better than the cardinals that my Discus ate in like two days. You never ever see a rummy nose by itself. If ones alone it is frantically looking for the group.
Yup, I used to argue that cardinal and neons are the best. Well, not anymore. They are the best color though. Wait a minute, Angels fish pick them off? because Ia m going to get Angel fish for my 50g.
If you're willing to do semi-agressive . . . Tiger barbs hold fairly close to together. They tend to chase, nip, and grouse with each other every moment of the day.
Cool video, but those barbs don't seem to be very active.
Going to take a quick vid of my tank.
Some of the fish aren't very active (it usually looks very frantic) because its late and theyre sleeping. Especially the glowlights, they don't move much at night. And its at night when Ill see them actually bunched closer. I dont have a lot of tetras compared to the vids posted but I dont think they school much at all. Same with the neons. But the danios, I LOVE. Always sticking together.
excuse the talking.
That rummy vid above is amazing.
Cool cool cool. Danios are fairly tight
Serpaes will serve for a cichlid-infested planted tank. Bombproof...
Pooh! Discus fit in my 55. It's at least three times as heavily planted as yours.
Hahaha, I like them. But some people hate discus in the tank. But to me, it really depends on the design. For natural design like mine, they would look fantastic.
