Way to think ahead. I plan on using something similar when I rescape my tank here in the next week or so after my Aquasoil arrives.

Did you make your own supports or are these something you bought?

I made them myself with old plastic bins cut to size. Also, do you know where to get Anubias or bolbitis for cheap?

If it's the same scape I'm thinking about (Zhang Jianfeng) then those would be marbled hatchets.

Be careful with hatchetfish as they will jump out of your tank if you don't have it covered. Their body shape is that way because in the wild they will leap out of the water to avoid predators and they can jump a long ways. You can make them feel more secure by putting floating plants on top but without a cover I can guarantee they will end up on the floor. I used to have a large school of them and my tank is completely covered except for the back has notches about 2" for equipment to go into the tank and I still lost about 10 of them from jumping out of that little opening.

Glad your not going with the hatchet, everyone who I knew who kept them even with tank covers and only holes for the intake/outflow the hatchets still found a way out of the tank

No all the fish that are shaped like that are hatchets and there body shape and pectoral fins are that way so they can jump out of the water. I think you should pick a school of one type of fish. Ember tetras, lemon tetras, emperor tetras, or chili rasboras would look nice in there but it's your tank so you find a fish you like and go with it. People can give you suggestions but ultimately it's up to you.

That's what I had before, but I'm wondering what to do with my neons and ram.
