You should get harlequin rasboras. They are small hardy and swim in sice shoals. I have 8 in with fish much larger then them. The other fish ignore them and i had no problems with aggression towards them.

I love my Mountain CIoud Minnows! Never thought I'd like minnows, but they are great! Get along with my Rainbows, Giant Danio, guppy, platies, balloon mollies, Bolivian Ram and Kribensis. They don't school tightly all the time, but do stay fairly close to each other, and are quite attractive with their blacks, tans, reds and whites. They are a little over an inch long. I have three, but want a couple more, as you should have at least five.

10 gallon- 8 Harlequin Rasboras, 1 female betta.

20 gallonH - 1 Peacock Gudgeon, 2 Skunk Cories, 1 Sparkling Gourami. , one male betta, 2 nerite snails.

55 gallon - 3 Turquoise Rainbows, 1 Boesemani Rainbow, 2 Australian Rainbow, 4 Gold Dust mollies, 1 L. Dorsigera, 2 White Cloud Mountain Minnows, 1 Honey Gourami, 3 Cherry barb, 1 Koi Angelfish, 4 female betta.

I keep 7 Harlequin Rasboras in my tank, they're always in a tight bunch together! A nice orange colour with a black stripe going down their rear half. I definitely recommend the little guys, there's a few pics of them on my aquarium page :)

Actually, if you look closely at my profile picture you can see 4 of them together in the background...
