    hi guys, would like to know what fish schools best in your tank.

    please note :
    1) please poll only if you have tried keeping the fishes and you find that they school really well.
    2) you are allowed to poll more than 1 choice if you have a few choices that school equally well
    3) please do not poll if you have a predatory fish in your tank that makes the fish schools.

    thanks

    Rummie nose!!
    Always stay in a really "tight" pack.
    Minimum tank size imho should be a 3 ft tank.

    Boraras brigittae form loose to tight schools for me. I have not kept enough specimens for the other species to see if they form tight schools.

    i have 2 separate tanks of boraras (used to have 3 but combined the boraras in 2 of the tanks into just 1 tank) and they've always schooled for me.

    Rasbora einthovenii and Rasbora dorsiocellata. The latter is particularly lively and their blue eyes and silvery bodies a good contrast to a rich green/brown background.

    seems like rummynose is a great schooler! but rummynose is quite big.. not quite suitable for 2ft tanks

    The boraras brigittae is definitely the way to go!
    Not only do they make your tank look bigger due to their small size(one of the smallest out of yopur polling list if i'm correct),they form very tight schools when left alone.The only drawback being due to their size,they might take awhile to get used to human presence? Corydoras anyone? The pgymy families school particularly well! Your hasbrosus look damn good when they school!

    Gentle giants of congo tetras is schooling for me despite in school of only 8 ( in fact it takes only 6 for them to school) , bigger tank owners might wanted to consider this species.

    Seems golden tetra arent usually chosen to school in tanks due to their dull colors.
