Shoaling fish, and I have dozens. In fact, pretty much all my fish are shoaling fish. Meaning, fish that need a group of their own species. Characins (tetra, hatchetfish, pencilfish), rasbora, barb, corys, loaches.

Some of these swim together a lot, others rarely.

Most shoaling fish don't actually swim around in a group, but they may stay relatively close or they may spread out. Freshwater fish are quite different from marine fish in this respect.

Some freshwater fish do tend to remain together most of the time. The rummynose tetra species do, and most of the medium rasbora. Glofish are a variant of the zebra danio.
