    Keeping a school of 50 green tetra in my 4 x 2 x 2 tank for 2 weeks and they tends to swim in a tight group. Very timid fishes which will dash all around the tank when the light is on.

    Hmmm, looks like rummy nose and cardinal tetra are in the lead.
    My cardinals schools well too, but unfortunately they are rather timid and tend to hide behind the flora and driftwood when I approach to view them.

    Re: Poll for your best schooling fish!

    I may add that I've found out recently there's a certain "magic number" when it comes to schooling fish. This number varies according to size of tank and the aquascape inside. I used to have about 9 ember tetras that didn't school at all, but once I added 5 more, they started schooling.

    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!
    I accept with information: White cloud minnow is the only schooling fish that i got in big enough numbers 100+ looks good in a 4ft tank and are tough as well.

    Cardninal tends to play hid and seek, they tends to disappear when you want to take a close look at them. Rummy nose is good schooling fish and very lively as well.

    Hi,
    I agree, that Hemigrammus bleheri is the best, especially if one keeps them in a larger group they will always school...

    some of them might swim together so that it looks like in a school, Angelfish don't school like tetras. When Angelfish pair up, they will be aggressive towards other angelfish when they are breeding. They are territorial so they might fight & bully. So i wouldn't consider Angelfish. I believe Rummynose Tetra school the best, so much so that my entire bunch all escape into my media compartment together!!

    Re: Poll for your best schooling fish!

    I've just changed out the tetras in my tank with white cloud minnows. I must say they school better than the neons, and possibly the cardinals.
    Need something to scratch that itchy hand of mine.

    Don't act smart. Be smart!

    Re: Poll for your best schooling fish!

    I recently bought 4pcs of Glowlight Danios and they are always swimming together. I believe they will school well if there are larger numbers in my tank. They're an absolute pleasure to watch cos they're beautiful, very lively and always swimming together.

    I used to have rummynose and they schooled together beautifully. Now I have cardinal tetra, they school but very loose. My friend has 4 congo tetras, even with 4 they school.
