Common Hatchet

Description

Common Hatchetfish (Gasteropelecus sternicla) are known for their unique shape, resembling that of a hatchet or an arrow. Here are some typical specifications:

  1. Temperature: Common Hatchetfish are generally comfortable in tropical temperatures ranging from 72 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit (22 to 28 degrees Celsius). It is important to maintain a stable temperature within this range to ensure the well-being of the fish.

  2. Minimum Tank Size: For Common Hatchetfish, it is recommended to keep them in a tank that has a minimum capacity of 20 gallons (75.7 liters). A larger tank provides more swimming space and helps to maintain stable water conditions. Additionally, a larger tank can accommodate a small school of these fish, as they are known to thrive in groups.

Common Hatchetfish are known to be relatively peaceful and can be kept with other non-aggressive fish species that inhabit the upper levels of the aquarium. It is important to provide a secure lid for the tank as these fish are known to jump when startled or threatened. Additionally, the tank should be well-maintained with appropriate filtration and regular water changes to ensure optimal water quality for the fish.
