Chili Rasbora Tank Recomendations

26158 5
Hello everyone!

I currently have a planted 2.5 fluval set up with a few cherry shrimp and a horned netrite snail.

I'm really wanting to add a few fish and have fallen in love with chili rasbora.

I have "The 101 Best Freshwater Nano Species: How to choose and keep hardy, brillant, fascinating nano fishes, plants, and invertebrates" book and it lists that the minimum size for these little guys is 2.5 gallons.

My question for everyone would be how many could live happily in a 2.5 gallon? I know they are schooling fish so I want to make sure I get enough for them to be happy. I also have a 3.5 tank I want to set up as a planted tank as well, would this be a better choice?

If you all think these tanks are too small, let me know! If they are, I'll just stick to my invertebrate set-up ^_^

Thanks in advance for any help!
