In Search of Schooling Reef FishPosted on Friday, February 10th, 2012 at 11:02 am by Paul Tucker
I’ve talked with many of local fish store owners and other friends that have been in the hobby for a long time asking them about suggested fish that are small and stay in tight schools. The standard reply is chromis which come in a variety of color, but they tend to get a large than I am looking for. I’ve been seeking something comparable to the neon tetras of the fresh water world. I just recently read about the Luminous Cardinalfish in another blog. I was excited to see that I wasn’t the only person that has been searching for a small schooling fish.
Do any of our ReefTools readers know of other species that fit the bill? If so, please take a moment to make suggestion in the comment area below.
Here is a video of the Rhabdamia gracilis (Luminous Cardinalfish).
