Silver Dollar's

How worried should I be about my Silver Dollar's eating my plants? I have had them for about a week, and got them on the suggestion of the LFS, but have not noticed them eating any of my plants yet. They basically just hide behind the plants and driftwood. I have had my planted tank for about 2 years and don't want to ruin any of my hard work.

Well.. not sure about the plants atm... how many do you have? What size tank are they in? Any other tankmates?

ahh here we go from the profile:


Origin: Found over a wide area within parts of Brazil, Bolivia, Guyana, Peru and Venezuela: rivers of the north Guyana Shield, Rio Paraguay basin, and the western basin of the Amazon. It inhabits densely planted tributaries with slow water movement. Compatibility/Temperament: This is a peaceful schooling fish growing to almost 6 inches in size. They have a tendency to consume several plants, mostly those with soft foliage as they are largely vegetarians by nature. They are shoaling fish and must be in a group, minimum six,and they should not be kept with fish that are smaller, as these will probably be eaten.
