Suggestion of fish stockings.

Iwagumi cycling, and nearing the end. Exicted to start add stockings. So, basically give me lists and species of fish that stay small and school nicely. Don't worry water parameter, I'll handle that once I review the species.

What size tank is it?

I got about 9 Harlequin rasboras and I love them. Looking to get more when I get a chance.

55 Gallon "Nature's Strife"

It's a 20 high, giving all the substrate, plants and rocks. I'd say 12 - 15 gallon of space.

Cardinal tetras and neon tetras school together naturally, probably because they look similar enough.

Ember tetras... harder to find, but compliment a planted aquarium nicely.

Black skirt tetras, for a different tetra look, and are very hardy.

Rummynose tetras school tightly, most the time, better than neons and cardinals do.

Im a fan of rasboras. Tetras i really like rummys and cardinals but they are kinda big imo. I would only put 2"+ in a 20gal long or bigger. I would try and get fish under 2" so you can stock more fish in the tank. Id rather have 20 small schooling fish than 10 medium schooling fish. Throw in some otos and/or shrimp for algae control.
