As Toad indicated, size matters. Providing your tank is large enough, your Silver Dollar will greatly appreciate the addition of several more Silver Dollars.
Silver Dollars are one of my favorites, and I have a school of ten. SD' s are the universal dither
fish, you can keep them with so many different varieties of fish, including large cichlids.

I'm already assuming you have a big enough tank size suitable for a featherfin catfish (1 ft is about full grown adult size), and that you have a pretty big tank for these fellas.

Compatible fish would be more silver dollars are they like being in groups, school of tiger barbs (10 +), angelfish, bala sharks (sometimes labeled silver sharks), sailfin plecos, and I think convict cichlids would also be feaseable.


If you decide angelfish I advice not keeping tiger barbs and/or convict cichlids with them.

A five foot tank, probably a 120 gal ?. A lot of space to fill. I would definitely add more SD' s and mix in a few Fancy ones like the spotted or striped. Also research some of the mid to larger sized New World cichlids.
Pictured is one of my male Maculatus Silver Dollars.
