I am a very big fish person. But, my favorite fish is a hatchetfish. I have learned more about the silver hatchet fish then any other hatchetfish. But when you have any type of hatchetfish, you should always have a net over your filter hole, so your hatchetfish will not jump out. For proof, I have had two hatchetfish jump out of my tank. One was a silver hatchetfish. It was playing in the filter current for a few days. But one morning before I left the house, I did not see my hatchetfih in my tank. A while later, we found it by the stand our fish tank is on. It was to late to save it. You can also ask a person at a fish store. But hatchetfish are very good fish to keep.

    It might be dangerous to keep a hatchet fish but its not. Have you seen a hatchet fish? It's small so you can keep it. In rivers maybe there are some hatchet fish that are lost. Fisher men sometimes let pepole adopt hacthet fish would you like to adopt one? Like also to if you don't know ask a vet or a person in the fish store enjoy having a hatchet fish pet!

I have resently bought a single tin foil for my 30 gallon tank. When I purchased him he was about an 1 1/2 inches, and in just over 2 weeks he has grown another inch. Other fish in my tank include 1 albino cory, 2 small alge eaters, 1 giant danio, and 1 small shark about 3 inches (not sure what kind because I purchased it long ago, not bala).

We have two of these entertaining fish. Both are orange and about 4" in length. We keep them in a seven foot tank with several other species however we have found that they do have a penchant for the tetra neons and our crew of those has shrunk from 10 to 4! We find them very friendly to us, funny to watch but they definitely rule the roost in the tank. We have had several clutches of eggs but the other fish must eat them cos they disappear very quickly. I wouldnt want to part with them now as they are an endless source of amusement.

I fell in love with the bright orange pair I have as soon as I saw them, what made me smile the most was their interaction with me. These fish are so friendly and sociable, my friends are fascinated with them. They are around about five inches at the moment and live very happily in my community tank, although they used to be alot more fish in the tank.
I havent replaced them as my two parrots are getting so big there would be no room left for the little guys!!.
Currently I have angels, tetras, catfish, clown loaches and a rope fish all living together quite peacfully. When I first brought them I found it very difficult to find any information on keeping these fish, but I have treated them no different to my other fish, they eat catfish pellets, tropical flakes, bloodworm and their own kind of cichlid food.
I would not hesitate to recommend these fish to anyone, they are very well natured and have a cheeky kind of wit about them, which makes them a conversation piece most dinner times.

I had 2 of these little pinky orange heart shaped cuties but sadly both died due to bad advice and a parasite they had when i got them. But for the 8 weeks i had them before they died they were a pleasure to watch and like little people, very nosey and very playful especially when i was dusting the outside of the tank. I intend to get some more when i get a bigger tank.

LUCY I hear ya sister. ive had three suckers climb out of my 10 gallon tank through a 4x1 inch space. what happened in my other experiences. more catastophe- it sucked the scales off of its tank mate- wounds which quickly festered and grew fungus and the fish died. After killing all my other fish- the little demon climbed through the tank and on to the hood, right next to the light switch. The image of its dried out body practicaly mocking me still haunts me today.

Hi, I have an irridescent shark/sutchi and i dont recomend it to beginners because he gets frightened very easy, but if you show him who is boss when you are cleaning the tank and let him get used to you he will go to the other side of the tank and wont flip out.

I like going to this site for answers to my livebearer questions.I own 4 swordtails,if you include the baby fry,1 large female guppie,and 30 of her fry.People say livebearers are only for beginners,but I like having fish that are easy to breed and tell apart.I could not imagine having a tank without atleast 2 livebearers.I would like to see more pictures or swordtail colors on this site.I enjoy seeing some of the vast color types!Thanks!
