Rummynose for sure. But like Coltonorr suggests, go which a much larger school.

I'd go with 30 (If you have the room) of whichever you like more. (as Epicfish hints)

Myself I'd go Rummynose or Harlequins for their pretty tight schooling behavior.

for schooling, rummynose hands down. but i like both but i would go with rummy's. in my opinion rummy are the best schoolers. and like other said with your tank size 20+ would be great.

in a 90g i would personally do 20 rummies and 20 cardinals. In my 60g i have 12 rummies and 10 cardinals. It looks good. I'm thinking about adding a few more cardinals since they tend to loosely shoal so they are always spread throughout the tank.

I can only choose one type because I have many other fishes already. 10 tiger barbs, 3 blue gouramis, 4 siamese algae eaters, 2 BN plecos, 3 kuhli loaches, and 1 red tailed shark. So I can't choose both. But I think I'm going to go with the rummies since I really like watching fish school. And cardinals are a bit.....dumb in my opinion. They look nice but they seem to be brainless.
