Black Neon Tetra (Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi)
Black Phantom Tetra (Hyphessobrycon megalopterus)
Red-Tailed Phantom Tetra (Hyphessobrycon roseus)
(Hyphessobrycon eques)

Marbled Hatchetfish (Carnegiella strigata strigata)
Carnegiella strigata fasciata
Black-winged Hatchetfish (Carnegiella marthae)
Pygmy Hatchetfish (Carnegiella myersi)

False Cory (Aspidoras pauciradiatus)

Hara jerdoni
Shadow Catfish (Hyalobagrus flavus, ex. Pelteobagrus ornatus)

Hatchetfish should never be put in a nano. In the Amazon, they literally fly out of the water. Fishbase.org quote regarding Carnegiella strigata strigata: "Aquarium keeping: in groups of 5 or more individuals; may jump out of the aquarium; minimum aquarium size 80 cm".
