    Default Schooling fish for a planted tank


    0 Not allowed!
    Does anyone have a recommendation for a schooling fish species for a planted tank?
    I am looking for something bigger than a neon or cardinal tetra, maybe about the size of a white cloud. Something that isn't as common as neons or cardinals, but still fairly easy to find?
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    How about Rummy-Nose Tetras ? Or Lemon Tetras ?

    Harlequin Rasboras. Tight schooling fish, active middle to upper layer, and grow to the size of a quarter in a larger tank.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    I always liked the way my daughters bloodfin tetra looked and schooled in her tank.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I like HB's suggestion of Bloodfins. You could also go with Gold tetras or Blue tetras.

    I like the idea of Lemons or Rosy Tetras. I like high bodied tetras.

    Hard water/soft water? Tank temp?

    Thanks Talldutchie, forgot to mention that.
    pH is approx. 6.8-7
    Moderately hard
    Tank temp. Approx. 23.5degrees Celsius in winter and 25-26 in summer.

    The blue tetras are a stunner but I doubt I will be able to find them.

    Unless wild caught, the fish will acclimate to whatever water conditions the OP's water is.

    I have some blue tetra and they are very pretty fish. I have lost several to them jumping. The tank they are in is covered but when I do water changes I take it off and they start to fly. I learned the hard way to keep a close eye on the them. Something to think about if you can find them. They are also very active, and swim all over the place. They do not stay in a tight school unless they feel threatened. Very nice fish though.
