The third in this genus, the pygmy hatchetfish, is quite delicate. With the marble or black-wing, 7-8 would be fine. But then I would have 7-8 Flame Tetra. And the Bolivians. And the corys (5). With plants this would be fine. And hatchets need some floating plants.

Thanks for the info...I'll have to see what's available in my area...I really want to limit my trips to Portland...hate driving up there...lol! I think I saw Silver Hatchets at Petsmart, but I know they get a little bigger...

The Wet Spot has a website, though I can't say whether or not it is up to date with fish in stock. But I'm sure a call or email would get an answer. Wild-caught fish are seasonal of course.

I would not put the Silver Hatchetfish in a 20g, they do get larger and need a bit more space for a decent group. And without a group, they will not do well.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

My lis of what's wrong with Portland is too long to mention here...lol! I'd rather stick with fish that I can find locally if possible. I'd almost rather pay to have them shipped than drive up there.
