I've got 10 Scissortail Rasboras in my tank and they are really awesome schoolers! They don't have alot of pretty color, but the silver on them is really flashy and they stick together tightly. The leopard danio as well as both Bala Sharks also have decided to join their school and can be seen frequently swimming with them as well

My black skirts are schooling like crazy! They just starting doing this within the last month. Pretty neat!

That is so cool, huh? I love watching them swim together in perfect unison
The cardinal tetras I just got are staying pretty close together too

I have found of the tetras - cardinal stick closer together. Also the rummy nose, but they also remind me of fish with ADHD lol.

I have Hengeli rasboros at the moment which are pretty bronze colour - I don't think they school as closely as the rummies or cardinals though.

Why thank you StormSkiez. There are about 40 different types of rasboro. Amazing when you think the most common and only ones to be found locally to me (London) are harlequins.

I love neons for schools, they form tight schools and stay small so you can easily keep 20 and they look GREAT!
