Get Schooled, or shoaled (Part 1)

Nothing is better than seeing fish school or schoal in an aquarium.  Now schools are when fish change direction simutaneously while swimming very close to each other.  A shoal is when fish swim in more of loose groups and swim more independantly (much more common in a reef aquarium).
