Hello,

So I've heard that some fish prefer to have groups of 6 or more fish. I've also heard somewhere else that some fish are close enough that they might school together.

I'm wondering if anyone knows a really good resource where I can find out more about this, or if they could tell me, that would be great.

The reason I am concerned about this is because I want to try and really get as many different kinds of fish in here as possible, without overstocking.

That applies more on fish with almost the same resemblance yet different species.
Neons and cardinals resemble each other except the extension of red coloration but they shoal together all the same. 3 species of rummies will also shoal together. And so do zebra and leopard danios. Harlequin rasboras and hengelis may also have the chance to do so although I've never tried the hengelis but their appearance are close anyway.:)

There's nothing wrong with that.:) It's fun to watch different species shoal together.
