I would like to add a few schooling fish which are not smaller then 1.25 inch, quick, hardy and peaceful meaning they will not nip at my discus and angel. Can you share a few ideas.


They need to be compatable with:

True Altum Angel
Discus
two GBR
Two GGR [ One killed ] Krib below killed the small femail GGR.
Two Kribs [ Had to give back ] paired up & got to aggressive.
Two Odessa Barbs
One aposto
two loaches

i like cardinal tets, ive heard angels will eat them, but i have met many people who keep them sucessfully together. u could also as suggested danios. though its the cardinal tets that form the tightest schools (neons are more tighter, but too small).

The store i went to carries some Nice Wild-Type Zebra Dainos. But i thought i read that they can be fin nippers. I also like cardinal Tetras

Well so far I have came down to the following.

Cardinal Tet, Rummy nose, & Glow Light Tet which are all peaceful, like slightly soft acidic water, and are not fin nippers. Any other suggestions?.

After allot of research I think i am going to get Harlequin Rasbora . They will do good in my water, are very peacfull, Are very quick swimmers that school and are large enough that my True altum could not eat them.

I was about to reply that I used to keep rasboras with my Discus. They did pretty well, and they are very nice little fish.

Yea-I went a little crazy and got 20 of them. I was worried at first, but my filtration can handle it. I have two HOB 65'S each rated 270 GPH and a Rena xp4 rated 450 GPH on my 55 Gallon totaling 990 GPH:). They are fun to watch, but wish they kept tighter schols. Then again, I just got them so maybe in time that will change.
