The Silver Dollar fish, also known as Metynnis argenteus, is a popular freshwater fish species native to South America. These fish are known for their striking silver coloration and unique disk-shaped bodies, which resemble a silver dollar.


Silver Dollar fish require a large aquarium of at least 75 gallons with plenty of swimming space and hiding spots. They are active swimmers and enjoy shoaling with other Silver Dollar fish or other peaceful species. These fish are relatively easy to care for and can be kept by both beginners and experienced aquarists.


They are omnivores and will eat a variety of live, frozen, and dried foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and commercial flakes or pellets. It's important to provide a varied diet to ensure they receive all the necessary nutrients for optimal health and coloration.
