Default Shoaling or schooling fish for 5G

Hey guys, I need some input for a nice sized fish to compliment my 5g nano.

I'm fully aware that shoaling and schooling is behavior (often defensive) but nonetheless, I'd like to see which fish are known to school.

At the 5G size, I was considering Chili Rasboras but the way these tiny fish swim - in short "kick" of their fins dart-stop-dart, doesn't make for a nice flow.

Perhaps cardinal tetras?

Anything that swims in less disjointed fashion lol. I love Harlequin Rasboras but they're too large for a nice school in a 5G.

They will be complimented with one or two dwarf cory species and ideally some cherry shrimp down the road.

Ideas are welcome!
