Agreed.:) Large boisterous fish combined with small fish=stress for small fish

[quote="KishFeeper"]Q: Have you been searching for a great large fish to add to your community tank?

Q: Have you been worryed that big fish might eat all your neon tetras or smaller fish?

Q: Have you been looking for a shoaling fish that is hardy?

I would have to say Silver Dollars. They grow FAST and I have never seen them pick on the smaller fish; they also schoal nice. And yes, I know they need a large tank, as they can get 6 - 8 inches. They're great! :D

Silver dollars actually grow 10 - 12 inches, and they are primarily vegetarian fish, so I wouldn't consider putting them into a planted tank. They have been known to eat small fish such as neons and guppies once they get large. The hardest part of raising silver dollars is that they stress easy, are prone to illnesses such as ick, and they get to be a lot of work to keep clean. In a large enough tank with good filtration, they can be quite awesome. The "red hook silver dollars" are very pretty, too.

They only had ick (so far) when I brought them home from the store (and i know that PetSmart fish often have ick); I treated the entire tank and have suffered no fish loss from it :) I can't believe how fast they grow! And they are very well behaved :) There is nothing 'tiny' in my community tank, just 3 platys which are holding their own. If they appearto be picked on, I can move them. Silver Dollars are sweet!
