Do you need any other help or information for this fish? Just FYI, they do like to be in schools of 6+

They like to swim and dart around ALOT, so they need alot of horizontal space. I think a 30 gallon is the very minimum tank size, as long as it's the long kind, not the tall. They're very nervous fish, so I wouldn't keep less than 6

They should get along, but will need a school of their own species.

Yup! Like Platylover said, they get along well with other fish. They're peaceful community members and would act as good dithers, but they do need friends of their own species.
