Carnegiella marthae (Black Winged Hatchet)

Unmistakable shape that does indeed resemble a small hatchet. The pectoral fins are very large and curved. These fish are true flyers, and when frightened will leap out of the aquarium, so keep it covered!

Somewhat transparent but darker above and marbled on the flanks.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Very peaceful, schooling fish that can only be kept in community tanks with other gentle species. Cardinals, neons, Corydoras, Badis badis, etc., are ideal.

Not bred in captivity.
