There are 500 fish or so.
They school well alone even with other fish(there are many Rummy noses) such as hatchets, pencils, cories, emperor tetras etc.
Small tanks do not allow for many smaller schooling fish the room to school well, they are confined. If you try more open scapes, you can have better luck as this provides more open space.
