If you click on te shaded name of Silver Dollar it gives you our profile for them.

Here's an excerpt taken from that profile

These fish are primarily vegetarians, though in the wild they will eat insects and worms. Their diet should include mainly vegetable-based foods, such as flakes designed for herbivores, romaine lettuce and other vegetable matter.

Yes they probably would eat all of those, but as mentioned they are herbivores, meaning they would prefer plants for the most part. The bugs would likely just be filler for the most part as they probably aren't designed to efficiently digest meat. Too much meat and they could wind up with too much protein leading to all sorts of health issues.
