All fish are different, i know cory catfish are schoolers but do well in a group of 3, same goes with danios, but some fish require schools of 6 or more. These are minimums, a cory school of 6 is better than 3 but either will work. Some fish need a school of 6 and no less or they will be very stressed and have possible death. 6 is the common minimum since most schooling fish are in the 6 category, others in the 3.
I think the silver dollars need a school and the glass fish (if it is the glass cat fish than i dont think they need one but if it is the glass tetra thingy then im pretty sure they do)
EDIT: yes after googling both of them they both need schools
