    Hey guys,

    Does anybody have nice schooling fish for a 120L tank...?
    I dont know what I want to keep, I have a tomatoe clown and 4 flag tails,
    should be smallish fish.

    Suggestions on what I should get are also welcome.

    Thanks

    Showtail guppies are nice and cheap:lol: ..... Why not blue/green chromis? Or goldies or a mix of them? Orange/red flowing with green/blue look very nice

    The flagtails should school but if you add goldies you will need to feed them atleast 3 times a day cos they dont have big stomachs. I found the goldies just starve cos not all of them will eat flakes straight away.

    Goldies are a big problem because you need to feed them roe in start to get them eating. You need to do this at least 3 times a day or they will die. Once they start eating flakes then they are a lot easier and I have found that they only need to eat twice a day if they eating flakes.

    In all honesty I don't think you should be looking at putting any more fish in your tank, let alone a school of fish in a 120l tank. I have the exact same tank as you, a Jewel Lido 120 and I reckon 4 or 5 fish maximum.
