Adult silver hatchet fish might work, I don`t think the eel will bother them. What kind of eel

Glow light danios or just striped or leopard are nice schooling fish. The glow light danios are super cool if you like a little more color.

Marbled and silver hatchets are the best. Killifish are also cool. Rainbows are another choice. Do you mean tire track eel?

I personally like pencilfish, they're different. Hatchets are always a nice choice, just make sure you have a tight lid!

Pencil fish are pretty hard to take care of though and are delicate. My hatchets don't jump at all in the tank. Lol. Do you keep any pencil fish?

I use to keep them in my discus tank a couple of years back. Never really seemed to have a problem with them. Hatchets on the other hand... I one time found a marble hatchet stuck to the bottom side of my glass top (no idea how he got up there). Poor fellow roasted to death from the grow light.

+1 for thread fin rainbows. As long as you don't have any fin nippers, they are great.
