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...
