The Silver Dollar Fish Metynnis argenteus looks just as its name implies, round and silvery. This live freshwater fish is called “Silver Dollar” because its body is almost round and very compressed laterally.
The Silver Dollar, though very peaceful, gets rather large and needs plenty of room. It is fairly hardy and makes is a great choice for an intermediate aquarist who wants a community aquarium with good-sized inhabitants.
The first thing to notice about the Glass catfish is that it has transparent flesh, which allows us to see the spinal cord and internal organs. This transparent fish is also a picky eater; it has been known not to accept flake foods with ease.?The Glass Catfish is a very delicate fish; it is very sensitive of fluctuating water parameters, and should be placed in a fully cycled aquarium with low nitrates.
