Hmmmm. They're beautiful fish, but I doubt you'll see the sort of schooling you're looking for. It's really hard to beat rummies when it comes to that.

My white clouds sort of chase each other around in a sort of loose, disorganized manner. It's like what zebra danios do, but several notches down on the chaotic spastic-o-meter.

I had had the same idea of using Tanichthys for a big school. I am thankful for the info on this thread. In my research I came across a fish that I think might be as good as the rummies, or at least right up there, and that is the humble Moenkhausia sanctaefilomenae (so-called Red-eye Tetra). Anyone differ on this species as far as its cohesive schooling behavior if a large enough grouping? They certainly are fine looking with their silvery-ness and that distinctive black mark on the caudal area.
