My guppies don't stay on top. More mid to bottom level

Yeah guppies kinda swim everywhere. IMO hatchets would work better. Halfbeaks also work well!

Be aware that hatchet fish are jumpers. Any fish can jump, but hatchets are known for it. Some type of cover is needed on the tank.

that's another thing my tank has a pretty good size opening in the back and I don't want any hatchet fish jumping out.

Perhaps you could cover the hole if you really like the hatchets more.
