Stocking Mr. Aqua 12 Long

I need help. I'm looking to stock my Mr. Aqua 12 long with a single tight schooling fish; however, the catch is that I have high flow. I've been doing some research but it's difficult to find information regarding flow tolerance. I've been considering the following three fish:

1. Ember Tetra
2. Chili Rasboras
3. Rummynose Tetra

I'd consider Endlers even though they don't school tight.

Which fish would fish do you think will thrive in the open waters of an high flow Iwagumi aquarium?

Thanks, I appreciate your opinions.

Btw, I got a Eheim 2215 on this 12 long and I love the flow. I'm just looking for a compatible fish.
