So they eat plants like cows?(lol) While they are schooling fish, they don't need nearly that many! I have one that is 10 years old that has never been with more than one other Silver Dollar at a time. He has actually been alone for the past 3 years. He oddly follows my 4 year old Angel around, but my Angel is not fond of him. They are like tanks! My shortest lived one was 4 years old! My 10 year old one has outlived 3 Angels! He is currently the oldest fish I have. He may actually be older than 10, originally I thought 12!

Haha, I meant tanks as in army tanks btw! It is magnificent to see them in shoals, though! However, for 6-8 of them they'd need to have a 75 all to themselves because they grow to the size of Angels, but love swimming around!

Just cuz you keep a schooling fish a lone and it lives doesnt really mean anything. It will get mental problems and will not be happy.

IMO if schooling fish know that they're safe (size, tankmates, protection) than they don't really need a large school, or in a Silver Dollars case, no school. And fish can only get mental issues from a birth problem, they can however get phycological issues.
