Best Schooling fish (finally proof with video) Pg. 3


I am trying to find the best looking schooling fish for my newly setup. What would be the other schooling fish EXCEPT Cardinals tetra? or do you think that Cardinals/Neon would be the best?

THanks.

Rummynose tetra and lemon tetra are both good schoolers that are also quite attractive.

You can't go wrong with harlequin rasporas or bloodfin tetras. If you want something a little more bulky, bleeding heart tetras fit the bill.

or you can just do a TON of the Ember tetra.

Threadfin rainbows are pretty nice too, but once they get used tot he tank they will not school as much

I thought that Neon tetra or cardinals where the tightest schooling fish. Hmmmm....Rummy Noses are cool looking.

I do not want to de-rail the thread, but this caught my attention. How come there are so many different spellings for coydoras habrosus?
That has got to be the 5th spelling I've seen for this fish. I cant seem to find any info on which one is correct.

chili rasboras, ember tetras and pygmy cories are good candidates

I have rummynose, flame and neon tetras that seem to school together in my 75 gallon. I like the bright orange of the flames to contrast the green plants and black substrate I have. They are larger though than the others mentioned.
