Mystery fish

First off, sorry if this is in the wrong part of the forum!

I work in a pet shop and we have a big aquatic section, we just took stock of a torpedo barb order and it turns out there are a few fish that have been added accidentally and we aren't sure of a couple of them.

The first picture is pretty self explanatory, it's swimming around fine but we just can't remember it's name.Click image for larger version

The second one is a litre strange, it swims/floats around the aquarium like it's trying to camouflage as some sort of plant or twig...if that makes any sense at all. Click image for larger version

The first is a hatchet fish and I believe the second is a pencil fish. I hope that helps answer the question!

The hatchet looks like Carnegiella schereri (dwarf hatchet)
The pencil is Nannostomus eques (hockey stick pencil)
