The silver hatchet fish is the only hatchet fish bred in captivity and this is the hardiest of the hatchet fish family. Silver hatchets school at the top of the aquarium and eat flake food. These fish can jump so we recommend a cover on the fish tank.
Hatchet fish are peaceful and may be kept with nano tank species.
