I really cant decide because i love them all - i have always had a soft spot for Rummy noses though, don't know why! and i like HARLIE RASBORAS too Lemuel

If you add a few more neon's ashmar they will probably show their shoaling behaviour more.

I have added Harlequin Rasboras to the poll (sorry Lemuel hehe!!) - I would have voted for the Harlies but they weren't originally included and because I have already voted I can't vote again, so if anyone would like to add an extra vote for the Harlie's on my behalf please feel free - I don't think that is cheating is it!!!

I Added another tetra to the poll hehe!!!!- the Lemon Tetra!!

I recently bought 8 Lemon Tetras and they are wonderful schoolers

They will swim in a complete circle around the back of the heater - I couldn't draw a more perfect circle if I tried! and they do everything in unison! (even going to the LOO!)

I chose Rasboras. They are such funny little fish to watch. They love to chase each other (nicely) and play in the bubbles.

Of all the fish I have had, I would say the Harlequin Rasboras stick closer together than anything else I have seen.
