Best Schooling Community Fish

Hello~

I have some Black Neons and some Embers that school nicely. Are there any suggestions for other fish that school well for my community tank?

Thanks,
D

Research the smaller varieties of Barbs.
A small group of Odessa Barbs might look good in your set up.

I have a school of lemon tetras and they seem to do well with good colour.

Platys or mollies of just one colour another thought to add to posts.

Rummy nose or lamp eye tetras also school. They swim back and forth in one big clump, like marine fish you see on tv

I'll remember that. I ended up buying another 6 Black Neons and they school pretty well. The Embers do as well, but I only have 5 of those. I would like to have fish that school like you described.
THanks!

Most tetras will school glofish tetras will school no matter the color as long as the fins are the same.
