How do bud? I don't know too much about hatchetfish, but Wiki tells me there are several varieties.

Genus Carnegiella (Eigenmann, 1909)
  • Blackwinged hatchetfish, Carnegiella marthae
  • Pygmy hatchetfish, Carnegiella myersi
  • Dwarf hatchetfish, Carnegiella schereri
  • Marbled hatchetfish, Carnegiella strigata
Genus Gasteropelecus (Scopoli, 1777)
  • Silver hatchetfish, Gasteropelecus levis
  • Spotted hatchetfish, Gasteropelecus maculatus
  • Common hatchetfish, Gasteropelecus sternicla
Genus Thoracocharax (Fowler, 1907)
  • Greater hatchetfish, Thoracocharax securis
  • Spotfin hatchetfish, Thoracocharax stellatus
