I was sitting here looking at my 60 gallon tank thinking... When my Angels die, I would like to try some hatchet fish. Not that I am wishing any ill will on the Angels and I am sure they will be here for a long time yet but... I just like some other types of fish and would like to someday have them.
I have a 25 gallon that has only 5 male Guppies that are getting up in age and 2 Black Skirt Tetra that also came from a nasty dirty tank so I would suspect their life would be shorter as well. I am starting to think "what would I want in that tank?"
Are Hatchet fish too much in a 25 gallon? I would like at least 10. The only other fish in there are 5 Oto's and then I have a few assassins as well.
