    So my betta has unfortunately passed and I've decided to get a slightly larger tank. Either 60l or 80l and get a few schools of very small colourful fish. Just looking for any suggestions really. I already have a 180l with a varied amount of fish so would like something different.

    So far me and my son like the look of galaxy rasboras, emerald dwarf danios but havent seen much else.

    Could someone possibly reccommend anything and suggest stocking levels for either tank which ever is more suitable.
    Hoping to have atleast 2 or maybe 3 species. Doesnt have to been schooling or anything

    Green neon tetra are tiny and schooling and colourful! In an 80l (20g) you could maybe pair up green neon tetra with one other tiny schooling fish. It's not the bioload we are worried about its the tank width. It would have to be a very long and not very tall 80l because that is what schooling fish need. Else, you can only have one school

    Chili Rasboras! They are such a lovely colour.

    I really enjoy ember tetras and the pygmy cories! Would reccomend those.

    Other than that, maybe look into lampchop rasboras.

    Heavily plant it, and ember tetras look stunning!

    Thank you, yeah I'm looking at long tank rather than width.

    Ill have a look at those!

    I second the embers. I have a small school of them. They take a good while to stop hiding and being painfully shy but once they do finally come out of hiding they’re really fun to just sit and watch.
