They do seem to enjoy similar tank conditions i.e. the silver dollars are quite happy with a lot of movement in the tank. Gouramis don't like a lot of movement which is why I decided against keeping those in with my clowns. The silver dollars though are definitely still a possibility, they are such ...

Re: I had them

That is very true unfortunately, but it must be their only downside because they are such peaceful fish in every other way.

I have not kept SD because of their reputation as plant eaters. I do know that there are several fish sold with that common name. Do you know which ones you are looking at? Some get significantly larger than others. I believe they are Schreitmullers Metynnis, they only get to about 5" in size, I ha...

Oh these are lovely pics, really nice and clear, must be a good camera you have!! I wonder how much these fish eat in the wild? would they grow bigger faster if we fed them twice as much??

Silver dollars as tankmates

Hi,
In our LFS they have medium sized clowns in a tank with silver dollars, there is a huge bubble wall at the back of the tank and they all seem very happy!! :D
Has made me start thinking that silver dollars would make very good tankmates, has anyone else got these in with their loaches?

Yes, I agree, apart from when I turn the tank light out I hardly ever see them.

Oh WOW!!! these are really nice pics!!! the zebra loaches look really nice with the clowns, where did you get that gorgeous tree stump in your tank - such a lot of lovely hiding places, also that cone feeder looks really interesting, so much cleaner than dropping it all on to the substrate. I'm not ...
