I am considering adding a small group of the above-captioned fish to my 110-gallon community tank, and was wondering if anyone could give me some insight into their behaviour. In particular, I am wondering if they will school at all, and, if so, if they will hang out mostly in the mid-range (it is a tall (31 inches) tank, as the middle is a barren wasteland at present, which is what I am trying to remedy) of the tank. Also, is this a fish that would do well with only five of them, or would seven be better (well, obviously it would be better, but siignificantly so?).

I appreciate any input, and if you want to email directly to keep the board loach-specific, please don't hesitate to do so.
