20 high but really 10 stocking ideas

so i had a extra 20 high laying around and decided to throw it next to the 20 long. i filled it half way which i assume is around 10 gal also the fact i had a 10 gal filter laying around as well as heater which made it perfect to only fill it halfway.. i want to prob stock it with a few hatchets so the way that i have about 8 inches of tank above the water makes it likely that the hatchets wont jump out of the open top.

I used organic top soil with a small layer of flourite on top of it
lighting is over both 20 gal's, its a 48 inch fluorescent shop light with 80 watts

i want a school of hatchets but do not know much about them, do you guys think i should wait until my 29 gal upstairs is clear until i get hatchets with cardinals/neons? the tank has a canopy so they wouldnt be able to jump

what do you guys think as far as stocking goes for this tank? thanks in advance for any responses even if they are "why the hell are you only filling a 20 gal up half way"

hatchets would be better in a 20 gallon long, i definently wouldnt put them in a 10. i would do a couple of CPO's and a small schooler.
