Silver Dollar Fish

Silver Dollars do well in a community aquarium, but very small fish should be avoided as tank mates due to the adult size of this fish. While it does well in a planted aquarium, this fish does tend to eat live plants, so artificial decorations are generally recommended. The silver dollar is very hardy and works well as a fish for beginners as long as it is maintained in the proper tank size.
