are there any rainbowfish that wouldnt try and eat neon tetras because if so that would make things so SO much easier, possibly yellow rainbowfish? also im kind of thinking now it would be cool to do multiple species of rainbowfish

There are so many different kinds of rainbows and some that stay small and would probably work with you neons.

Wny 5 hatchets? I have always read at least 6. Either way I'd recommend at least doubling it. At least a dozen hatchets. I have had marbled hatchets for almost 3 years. They are great little fish, very thin so there isn't alot of bioload.

They can be spooked easily in my experience. So I would recommend adding them sooner than any more active fish, like the rainbows.

Good luck!

i guess six then but 12 hatchets is alot of fish they would end up taking up like half my tank

Hatchets remain at the very top of the tank. You will have no problem with a dozen.
