I have kept Silver Dollars for about three years now, they are a very nervous and shy fish and do better in numbers of three or more. They are a wonderful fish to keep and have had no problems apart from them eating every plant in my tank! Need to feed them plenty of veg such as lettuce. Have kept them with medium Tetras and angels and all are fine. Best to keep them in a larger fish tanks mine are in a 55 gallon tank.

They are somewhat aggresive when they get more than 4 inches. You can keep them in the community tank, but when they grow larger move them with similar size fish, because they MIGHT start messing with small fish like neons and some liveberears.
