Tetras are another great schooling fish. Depending on what ones you get how many you would get. Neons are a wonderful schooling fish, I have 20 of them in my 125 and they are absolutly wonderful.

Rasboras, tetras and danios are all good for active, schooling fish. I have 26 harlequin rasboras in my 90g, as well as 8 cardinal tetras and planning to get a few more.

Yeah, I like zebra danios also. I had 6 in my tank, but down to 4 now. One of them had a bulging eye last week and then just died I guess. They're usually really hardy though, plus being good, active schoolers.

corydoras!! the most underrated schooling fish (probably because they're mostly bottom dwellers).

i'd get at least a dozen habrosus or 2 dozen hastatus.

love the mini corys! my favorite fish that aren't killies.

penguin tetras real tight if you have a chiclid around like a krib or apisto.

The best schooling fish would have to be my 13 emerald eye rasboras and 13 ember tetras. They stay in a very tight formation, and occupy different parts of the tank. The embers live in the lower half and the emerald eye rasboras occupy the upper half.

10-15 Rummy-nose tetras.
i would go with them i have 3 and there always swimming and always moving together really peaceful and not to overly agressive but active.. thay are best kept in schools of 15 or more. and if you ever have a water problem there nose losses it color probley time to change the water even if oxygen gets low. I cant find them around here or i would get another 25. Ibeen looking for 4 months now. i paid between 5 & $6 4 3 of them. there calmer than the Danio and more actice than neon tetra.http://www.aquahobby.com/gallery/e_rummy.php
