Silver Dollar Question
 
Hey,

I have had a Silver Dollar for about 5 months now. It is fairly small still but has grown some.
However this week I noticed a red stain on its lower fin (not sure what its called) and it was never
there before.

Can anyone tell me why this appeared?

I did notice some silver dollars at the pet store today that had the same red coloring on their fin, however my fish has not always had this.

Do you know what specific species of silver dollar you have? Can you post any clear photos of your fish? There are a number of species of silver dollar that have coloration in their fins, some with black and red, some with just red. If the color does not appear to be "veining" which could indicate a health issue, it may just be a young fish obtaining its mature coloration as it ages.
