If you must, you can try the danios, he may or may not school with them, out of desperation he probably will. Small fish like this feel safest in groups, and if he has no other choice he will join the danio group if they let him.
I thought WCMS was common too! But petco near my area didn't carry them. BUT I thought it'd be nice if my male WCM joins with other different schooling fish. You know it's interesting to see how they adapt. I'm not sure if it's good time for Petco to special order for me. But I would try. It'd be my first time..? How do I ask them to order for me? Will they get the right fish? :O
So this little boy, He tried to fit in with my two bait red rosy and gray minnows. (They are about 3 to 4 years old. ) They did and he followed them whatever they go.
But I feel that those couple of older minnows would be happier to be in their own tank. I decided to remove them and moved them to their very own ten gallon tank. They look happier in there.
