Thanks Mac.
They are on the potential list of dithers for the new tank, but then i would ofcause have to have coverlid on.
I’ll start with the n. Marginatus i already have and then see what happens next.

A small tributary to the Rio Curaray, Peru:
Sitting in a canoe, I noticed some interesting ripples on the water surface, and that there seemed to be a lot of movements below it:

Suddenly a predator (unknown) attacked the small fishes, who escaped by jumping:

Afterwards, thousands of small fish seemed to take refuge behind our canoe:

I dipped the net to see what they were:

Hatchet fish and other small tetras.

An unforgettable experience!

btw I intend to put a group of my hatchet fishes in my low ph tank - the one with a colony of somethign - leaning towards mega or abaxis. The trick is my tank has 18 inch high glass sides so that should keep them in ;)
