LOVE this thread. My question is, can I have two of these schools in one 15g column tank (14x14 footprint)? I fell in love with black neons last night, so I am pretty certain I need to have a school of those. But after Niko's love notes about Harlequin Rasboras, I'd love to have a school of them as well. Will this work? I don't want to overcrowd my tank.

Quite agree. I don't keep neons anymore (because I got 'bored' with them and like to try other fish) but you just can't beat that electric blue/red coloration of them or cardinals for any planted tank.

I recently added zebra danios and rosey barbs, both for their schooling habits. 3/4 of the danios are schooling at any given time; Not bad. But the barbs move in groups of 3 or 4 at the best. The rest are scattered throughout the tank. Dissapointing.

I am still looking for some cories and otos for more schooling action.
