Schools are 6+ fish. It would depend on the tetra. If you did something like the ember tetra you could do 15 or so, cardinal tetras about 10 or the bleeding heart kinds 7-8.

Move the number of corydoras up to 6 and I'd call it stocked! Just watch on the tetra types, some are nippy and will shred your angelfish Can't wait to see what you'll do with this!

I do believe that cherry barbs don't nip, neither do zebras (usually). Most of the Danio species would be good, as would some of the rainbows.

maybe I will get neons, instead of zebra danios.....from what you all say, the actual neons are not as aggressive.
