Grouping fish

is there a type of fish that would group together as in a school, that would be able to be in a 60g tank?

4 Angelfish (3 Marble, 1 Gold)
1 Glass Fish
2 Blue Sunset Gourami
3 African Dwarf Frog

Glowlight danios, Danio choprai. Neat fish, and really awsome in a group.

try some cardinals ive seen them group together maybe 3 or 4 but it would limit the amount of other fish you can put in the tank

in the wild, the common firefish group in large groups. In a home aquarium your best bet is 5+ common firefish (the red). If there are any less you are likely to remain in one. As always however you have the chance of 2 pairing up and killing the rest. Afaik however, firefish DO group up.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
