Silver dollar is a common name given to a number of species of fishes, mostly in the genus Metynnis, tropical fish belonging to the family Characidae which are closely related to piranha and pacu. Native to South America, these somewhat round-shaped silver fish are popular with fish-keeping hobbyists. They can grow up to 10 inches, but most stop growing between 6-8 inches, the silver dollar is a peaceful schooling species that spends most of its time in the mid to upper level of the water. Its maximum lifespan is more then 10 years. 

Silver dollar fish need a diet high in plans and vegetables. Commercial spirulina based foods and vegetable based freeze dried/flake foods are ideal. 

Plecos and Doradids could be good fish to start with. Further ideal tank mates are peaceful South and Central American cichlids such as freshwater Angelfish, Firemouth and Green Terror cichlids. Giant Danios, Pacus and Anostomus are also good tank companions.
