Horned nerites are really nice as they stay small and are able to eat off the leaves of plants as well. They're usually more colorful and kind of cute as well!

"Different" small schooling fish?

I'm wondering if anyone's had experience keeping any of these? Do they school well or pose any threat to fry? Are they very shy? picky eaters? Thanks!
