Schooling fish

by duckinator617

Hello everyone. I am in need of a schooling fish for my 55 gallon planted tank. I already have 9 zebra danios in it and all as they seen to do is spread themselves out as much as possible. I know this might sound weird but it just doesn't look as appealing. I would like a schooling fish that is about the same size as a danio and would not be aggressive, if anyone has any suggestions on a fish that would be great.

you can add a few serpea tetreas, red eyed tetras, or some neons as well

i know you say not aggressive. i would say put in about 6 odessa barbs. 2 males to 4 females. the males are awesome. they are not really that aggressive. i have them in with 8 rummy nose tetras and they don't pay them any mind. it should also get your danios to school since they might consider the barbs a threat.

I am all for rummy nose tetras. They are the best schooling fish you are going to find.
Better than neons and cardinals.

Harlequin rasboras or rasboras heteromorphas bad ass they stick together better then neons or some bala sharks but need a huge tank for that
