August '12 - Collectible Fish: 4 Interspecies School Aquariums

Tetras, barbs, rasboras, rainbowfish and cories are the ideal fish groups for people who want to "collect" different types of fish without turning their tank into a fish salad or, worse yet, a battlefield. Within those five groups one can find a great variety of peaceful community species that get along very well within their own species and with similar ones. It's important to still keep at least 5-8 of each species though, so as long as your tank is large enough for the total population, collect at will!
