    Good Score or Ripoff? (Silver Dollars)

    Hi, so I got these two blackberry juveniles (I think they're Myleus Schomburgkii) for ~$50 a piece. So, is that their normal price or too much? They're ~5cm or 2". I just want to know if I'm overpaying because I plan on getting 2 more. I know their tank is small but they're just here...

    I have a group of 5 nice thin bar silver dollars “Myleus schomburgkii” that are around 5-7 inches and a tiger stripe silver dollar that I’m looking to get rid of and selling only as a Group. They are healthy and have a large appetite eating all different kinds of food.

    Do different species of silver dollar school together

    I was looking into getting some silver dollars for my 125 and was wondering if it was possible to get 1 of a few different species and have them school together. Would it also be possible to just get a group of 3 since they are not going in a huge tank or do I really need to get 5.
