Danio mixes

So I have been talking to a LFS owner and he has Blue Danio. I asked if they would school with the zebra Danio. He said "they do" is that true? Also he sells plants for $6 Sweet Aquatics is $3.50 and the LFS owner said(and i quote)"mine are more gooder". Just answer the danio question i went off topic but it was funny I had to share.

This is just all the "more gooder" reason to NOT listen to that guy about the danio schooling. Wait for someone here to confirm it from their experience and not someone who houses three dozen of them in a crowded tank and considers it "schooling". I've been wondering the same about some of my fish but pers have lost all faith in the all-knowing LFS dudes.

I don't have any experience with Blue Danios, but I have three GloFish that school with (or at least hang out with) my three zebra danios in my 40 gallon tank. Not sure that helps, but I figured I would offer up my observations.

My Leopard Danio used to school with a Zebra Danio before the Zebra passed, and they both would school with the 2 Scissortail Rasboras I have. (Completely different fish, but in my other tank my Rosy barb schools with my 3 Tiger barbs as well.)

Zebra, leopard, and blue danios will school together. A few other species might school with these as well.
