Asian Schooling fish?
1 Attachment(s)
Hello I am Stocking a 75 Gal tank. I currently Have 2 female bettas, 1 male betta, 2 Pearl Gouramis, 5 glass catfish and 3 True Siamese Algae eaters. I realized that I don't have any colorful Schooling fish. I'd love some suggestions of a few colorful schooling fish that i could add to my tank. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Nice tank you have there.

Rasboras are from Asia. My favorite is the Harlequin Rasbora. A nice school of 10-12 would look great in your tank. Here's a pic of some of mine in with Rummynose tetras.

Thanks, I looked at several type of Rasboras. What do you think about Rasbora Espei? I also like the two-spot barbs... but most barbs love to fin nip :( I like my bettas too much for that!

Id also love to see a school of Normal, albino, and green tiger barbs. But agian... my betta would get his little fins eaten off! the females would probly be okay though?

The Espei are ok too but I prefer the Heteromorpha. You could maybe even do a combination of the two. Cherry barbs are also nice and not as nippy I think. I love the red coloring of the males.
