Rosy Red Minnow Questions

So, I've been thinking of starting a tank with some minnows. They seem cute and they're pretty inexpensive fish. However, I don't really know what they require beyond that they're cold water fish. Do any of you know what would be a good size for a tank of rosy red minnows? And what about filtration, substrate, and cover? Are white cloud minnows the only possible tank mates for these minnows? I don't really want a big fifty gallon tank, so no goldfish. Can anyone here tell me what a good setup would be for these fish so I can decide if I can set up a tank?

All I know is that their minimum tank size is 15 gallons and that they are schooling fish

Thanks for the input, but I kind of gave up on the idea of getting minnows. Even if I had an adequate tank, I doubt I'd be able to keep many of them alive since they're in overcrowded feeder tanks and I don't think I have the experience to treat them for any diseases they might get from that environment.

I don't know much about them either, but if you want to get them still, disease free, and are comfortable ordering them online, I'd try here; http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/a....cfm?c=830+881
Also, here's a link about them :)
