I guess this is the end. My sister will get (free) guppies. Started with guppies, finished with guppies, but I have learned a bit about other things.
Thanks for y'alls help!
I have Carnegiella marthae (so-called Blackwing Hatchet) and C. myersi (Pygmy) in the 90g, and C. strigata (marble) in the 115g. All the commononly-seen hatchets are in our profiles under characins. The species in Carnegiella are the nicest in my view, and smaller overall; the marbles I think you were looking for are in this genus. The larger "Silver Hatchetfish" is another genus, and there is yet another genus (mentioned in the profiles but no species are included). The other genera fish do not have the small grace and charm of the Carnegiella species.
