My black skirts don't shoal either. We had 4, 2 male and 2 female, now we're down to 3, but they are very territorial and just swim in their little area. They are pretty though and maybe in a much larger group they would shoal but if you are really wanting a shoaling fish, I wouldn't choose the black skirts.
