I was wondering whether anyone knew anything about the habits of
or caring for hatchetfish. You probably think I ask too much but I
like to know stuff I guess. I'm also kind of a newbe to the hobby.
But I'm a fish fanatic all the same. Thanks, Hannah.
- Hey hannah...kinda cool fish huh...my fav is the marbled hatchetfish...lets
see Latin name carnagialla strigata...like to swim in the calm top
waters of your tank...get a lid they jump!!..Happy in school of 4
or more..grow to about 6.5 cm and live about 5yrs..water ph 6.4-6.8
15dgh...temp 72-78F... they are egg layers and like to eat mosquito
larva or flakes...that help you?
- Keep the top well covered. They're excellent jumpers. ;) I know
- Thanks, that's great. My favourite's the marbled too. But I like
them all so it doesn't make much difference which I buy. Very helpful,
I can't thank you enough, Hannah.
- Hannah, I certainly don't want to be a spoil sport for you (having
read your other posts), but I would wait just a while on the hatchet
fish. Since you are a newbie (which by the way Welcome Aboard the
Hobby of Fishkeeping), we want you to be successful and sometimes
the hatchets are not easily kept. As I mentioned under another post,
if you will let us know what kind of fish you have already (unless
you have mentioned in a post I have not yet gotten to or seen), we
will be glad to help you choose fish that will be easy to care for
and that you can enjoy.
