The Silver Dollar is one of the most recognizable fish that you’ll see for sale in fish stores.
These fish are quite hardy, and they aren’t especially challenging to care for. That being said, you will need a fairly sizeable aquarium of at least 75 gallons, as these are schooling fish that should be kept in groups of at least five individuals. For that reason, we recommend that hobbyists with some experience in fish care take on this species. So, if you’re new to fish keeping, you might want to look elsewhere for a more suitable species to get you started.
In this guide, we tell you everything that you need to know about caring for these gorgeous fish, including breeding them. First, let’s find out more about the Silver Dollar and its origins.
