"I had a couple ( I didn't know any better, I was only 12 ) in my first aquarium many years ago and they did very well. But these are schooling fish - it's unkind to keep less than 5-6. Some people seem to equate surviving with living a good life. Most humans aren't hermits and if kept in solitary confinement are pretty miserable. What makes you think an animal that has evolved to live in social groups wouldn't be miserable without others of it's species. They swim in schools for protection from predation - on their own they must not feel fully comfortable. So even if one hatchet can survive alone I wouldn't do it to them. And I feed live foods to improve their quality of life also. There are some pretty good flake/pellet foods available now but I feel my fish enjoy live foods."
