Dither fish

Aside from giant danios, what are some other species you have used to spread aggression with south Americans?

I have some black skirt tetras with my firemouth and cichlid currently, neither have even chased them.

I've read that barbs are pretty good too.

I've used longfin blue danios for dither fish but for a completely different reason. I have tetras that were skittish, anti social and spent most of their time hiding. The constant swimming in open water by the danios put them at ease and made them part of the community.
