What do silver dollar eat?

"Interestingly enough Silver Dollars are in the same family as Piranhas, but instead of being carnivores, they are almost exclusively vegetarian. Among their favored foods are vegetable flakes such as spirulina, lettuce, watercress, and cooked romaine or spinach. They will also eat cooked vegetables such as peas and squash. When feeding any fresh food, take extra care to remove any uneaten portions promptly, as it will foul the water." - freshaquarium.about.com
