I love these top dwelling fish.I first purchased them because of their unusual shape and the fact that they love to swim at the top of the tank. I have had both the marble and the silver hatchets. Both are peaceful and get along with all their tank mates. Hatchets are schooling fish so get at least 3 or 4 and they will swim around and play together. They are easy fish to keep not messy like some fish can be they also live a long time. Be careful because I hear they are jumpers and can jump out of the tank. I always had a hood on my tank so that never happen to me. My last hatchets lived about 8 years until a heater malfunction cause the death of my entire tank.
