Yes I think one school of some micro schooling fish would look best. Multiple schools might look too busy, the tank is already busy with colors and textures to begin with.

Breeding is fine but I do not have the means to raise fry right now, so a colony-type tank would be my preference if breeding would be happening. Multis would be great in my tank. If anyone knows a...
