The Marbled Hatchetfish are egg layers. Add peat extract to darken the water until it is almost opaque and keep the lighting subdued. Feed small flying insects to induce them to spawn. (Fruit flies or Black mosquito larvae will work).
The Marbled Hatchetfish will go through a long courtship after which the female will deposit eggs on plants and roots. The parents should be removed after spawning. The fry will hatch after 30 hours and become free swimming in 5 days. They must be fed finely powdered flake food (or similar; see baby fish foods) for the first 2 or three days but will eat baby brine thereafter. keep the lighting subdued.

What are the water parameters in the tank? I wonder if it's the same way with Hatchet eggs as it is with Discus eggs. My discus eggs won't hatch because the water needs to be buffered, should I chose to go that route. What's the tank's ph and hardness rating??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
