Can either silver or marbled hatchet fish be kept with tiger barbs? I've got a small pleco for the bottom, tiger barbs for the middle and considering these guys for the top, would tiger barbs hog all the flake food and/or kill hatchet fish?

no-tiger barbs do not make good tankmates for hatchets of any kind.
they are tig big , to rowdy, and to fast -their activity will make the hatchets very nervous.
a shoal of ,say,pristella tetras or harliquen/brilliant rasboras would be far better choice with hatchets .
