    So I just aquired a 75 gallon tank and was wondering what everyone would recommend for stocking. So I am moving 7 cherry barbs, 4 male and 8 female guppies, 6 green emerald cories, 7 rasboras, 6 nerites and 2 mysteries as well as 1 (or more) ghost shrimp. Will have lightly planted with driftwood. I do want only schooling community fish :)

    Guppies are not actually schooling fish. But with your proposed stocking plan you'll have 500 of them shortly. It will look like a school.

    Sorry, I couldn't help it. :)

    hahaha yeah they give fry off pretty often, but so far only the odd one or two survive and my LFS gives 10 cents credit for each haha

    Two of my favorite schoolers are lemon tetras and phantom tetras. I have black phantoms but they come in different colors. Tight schoolers and mine have been very peaceful with long finned tankmates. Very active fish. They go crazy when I feed them, or even just approach the tank sometimes.

    I would do 12 aeneus cories.
