Neon Green Silver Dollar


This rare and recently discovered species of Silver Dollar originates in the upper Rio Nanay in Peru. Juvenile fish display an intense, unmistakable iridescent green coloration throughout their entire body. As they grow, this color fades slightly but adult fish retain a distinctive green hue, with males developing reddish pink patches on their sides. Like most silver dollars, they are schooling fish and do best in a group. A great, unusual dither fish for larger South or Central American Cichlids.
