This is my 125g setup-
Fish:
- 5 Myleus Schomburgkii (black bar silver doller), 8 Metynnis Lippincottianus (spotted silver dollar), 1 Metynnis Fasciatus (tiger stripe silver dollar)
- 4 Geophagus Tapajos' red head
- 1 Hypostomus plecostomus (common pleco)
- 1 Calophysus macropterus ( Vulture catfish
Filtration:
- Fluval fx6
- Marineland emperor 400 HOB
- Aqueon 700 circulation pump
Weekly water changes of 30 to 45 percent.

Plants:
- 3 bunches of Microsorum pteropus ( Java Fern)
Lighting:
- 48 in all glass aquarium fluorescent strip
- 30 in Zoo Med aqua sun dual t5 fixture with color-max and plant-max bulbs

Silver dollars feed on a simple diet of omega one kelp pellets, bloodworms, and brine shrimp mixed with spirulina.

Tapajos' red head feed on blood worms and brine shrimp as well as kelp pellets left over from silver dollars

Vulture catfish diet consists of silver sides, shrimp as well as bloodworms
Pleco feeds off leftover food and driftwood that is in the aquarium as well as cucumber

Beautiful tank!

Have you seen the silver dollars eat the plants? They certainly might.
When I first put the java fern in they tried to snack on them but I think realized it wasn't worth it cause the leaves are to tough lol they haven't bothered them since, I went with the java fern hoping they would get discouraged due to the tougher leaves so my plan worked as I had hoped
