Metynnis argenteus (Silver Dollar)
Silver dollars are well-known and widely traded fish, though there is much confusion between individual species. Metynnis argenteus and Metynnis hypsauchen are very similar and likely sold interchangeably. Fortunately, all the silver dollars seem to share the same basic requirements.
Metynnis argenteus is a medium-sized, disc-shaped characin with a piranha-like appearance and a bright red anal fin.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A schooling herbivorous fish ideally suited to large community tanks. Good water quality is essential for long term success. Water chemistry of secondary importance, though soft, peat-filtered water is recommended. Attention should be paid to the diet of these fish: they are herbivores, and will consume aquatic plants given the chance. Otherwise tinned peas, spinach, algae wafers, sushi nori and other green foods can be used. Frozen foods such as bloodworms are readily accepted as supplements to their predominant plant- and algae-based diet.
