I already have a schooling fish tank, a 30 gal with neon tetras/harlequin raspboras/rummynose tetras, so I was trying to go a different route here. But it doesn't look like that's going to work out.

I am definitely doing a black background. Substrate is Flourite, so it's brown.

I think I've already settled it. Going to start by adding 3 or 4 more bosemani rainbows to round out a school of 5-6. Then I'm going to give it some time and evaluate how crowded it looks. If I feel comfortable with it, I'll take Kymmie's suggestion and add a small school of Congo Tetras.

Thanks for the suggestions guys!

I'm so jealous. I so really want Congos but simply don't have the room. You're tank is going to look fantastic. Pics after you've completed the stocking, please.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
