Saw my first bows in person
So, I saw my first bows at my lfs yesterday. Well, I've seen ones at PetSmart and wasn't terribly impressed.
These were the first I've seen in a proper tank, fed well, etc.
They were turquoise, and a school of around five. Not only pretty, but they seemed, well, curious. In that they responded like cichlids and gourami do to my "finger test".

Did you get any?

Nah. The only tank I have open is a 20-high, and I'm not sure the turquoise would do well in there. Dwarf rainbows maybe, but they didn't have those.

Rainbows are the best schooling fish, IMO. You could get threadfins or celebs rainbows or some blue eyes (considdering tank size, not stock).125 - BGK, pictus cats, silver dollars, kissing gouramis, palmas bichir, delhezi bichir
125 - Red severum, bolivian rams, Turquoise rainbows, irian red rainbows, loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, pearl gouramis
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, elephant nose, spotted ctenopoma, upside down cats
