I can't wait to get my shoal of 11 for my 250 gal. Something just attractive about them.

Yea they are way cooler to watch in a larger shoal. I actually have 7 tiger and three cherry I beleive. It's really nice to have that slight color variation. I mailny got them to pair with some loaches in the future. But now I'm happy even if I don't gwt the loaches lol.

Other fish with good personalities:

bettas and rams are my absolute favorites. they are so smart, curious, and social. they are responsive when you go to the tank, and they watch all the fish in the tank and respond to what they are doing.

gouramis are also thoughtful fish, although a bit cantankerous.

my neons and rainbows are very pretty, but they generally just swim around.

my dwarf puffer is like a dog lol. he is very inquisitive, has a great personality and he explores all over the tank. I can't even find him anymore I have so many plants in there, but he's comfortable now. I want some tiger barbs bad. Those were the first fish I wanted for the 10 but it's too small for them, so they are going to go in the 29 with the rams and the cories.

My wish fish would have to be the butis butis. Also known as the crocidile or crazy fish. These things have one of the coolest personalities I've seen in a fish.

One thing I love about fish is that most of them are pretty quick to learn where there food comes from. The danios in my 10 will nip at my fingers a bit too, and the guppies all come circling up like , "Is it chow time, yet?!"

My dwarf gourami has a HUGE personality. I hand feed him all the time. If he sees you in the room, he really pays attention to what you are doing. When I am using my Python, he supervises. LOL. He has to make sure you are doing things just right. I really think he enjoys the interaction with me.
