My Lid Has Holes...

I’m using an aquaclear 50 and the output is like a waterfall so I had to make a space in the lid for the water to fall through. The lid I’m using is the topfin one.

I really want some hatchets for some top activity and I want a schooling fish that strictly stays at the top. So if you think I can’t keep hatchets, please leave suggestions

What other fish are in the tank, larger fish can bully and eat hatchets.

Serpae tetras, kuhlI loaches and Apistogramma

But is the lid ok? That’s my main concern.
I think hatchets will do well with the other fish but I don’t understand what you mean with the lid, are you worried about them jumping?

Basically yes

Well, I think it depends on the personality of the fish, I have heard of experiences with people having hatchets jump out of the tank, my marbled hatchets have never jumped out, and there are two large openings. With the waterfall I think it would be unlikely they would jump out of it. You could try it, I would go for it if I were you, put maybe 6 or more if you feel you have the room.
