Hmm really? I thought they grew to 4cm? Thought I may just get away with it. Ok so what would you guys suggest for a mid/top dweller S-American fish that isn't a hatchet?

Are you looking for a surface dweller or just top level? Been years since I kept lemon tetras, but if my memory is right there are in that mid/top level swimming area.

Mine seem to hang around the mid level. Maybe they'll expand into more of the tank later..

Was looking for top, but all that I seem to have found are hatchets in the s American region

I really like black neons - they stayed near the surface a lot.. A little larger with a deeper body. Even at 4 cm, the fish is a snack.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
