Do you prefer lone fish species or schooling fish?

  • When you setup your tanks and stock then, do you go for a majority of them to be schooling fish - or do you go for more centerpiece fish without background fish?

  • Depends on if I want centerpiece fish, coloration, or if I just want a bunch of flashy fish that zip around )schooling ones).

  • I'm inclined to agree with Sharon, I like to watch schools of fish, so I see no problem going with schooling fish for a tank. It is aesthetically pleasing, for sure, though I do understand the appeal of centerpiece fish!

  • For freshwater tanks I tend to prefer to get a shoal species since it can be endless entertainment when watching. Plus, they can be fun looking at when feeding as they all race to the same small area at the top.
