xiaoxiy I'll call into my LFS sometime next week and see if they have any in stock. Man, pronouncing those names will be hard though. Ha

I've always found liveaquaria's prices to be on the high side. Wetspottropicalfish has much better prices and a much bigger selection. Shipping will still run you a bit though.

Nevermind, I found an old stocklist from msjinkzd of Pseudomugil furcatus for a decent price. I wondering if she has any left.

VivaDaWolf My giant danios school very very well

AaronT Danios don't really school well. I would go with a smaller rainbowfish species like the ones suggested above.

Hard Water Schooling Fish- 30 Gal

Hi,

I'm currently planning out how I want to set up my 30 gal (36Lx12Wx16H) tank and really want to have a single-species schooling fish with several otos and snails as the cleanup crew. The problem I'm running into is that my water is quite hard (180ppm+) as it is from a limestone aquifer. This is quite troublesome as most of the great schoolers (rummies, cardinals, harlequins, espeis) are all soft-water fish. As of right now, I'm thinking about getting a school of Zebra Danios, but my question to you all is, "Are there smaller fish which school well and will tolerate/thrive in hard water?".
