In what size tank? Rosy barbs are best as a schooling fish, as are Silver Dollars. The chinese algae eater also can get agressive to larger fish (such as your silver dollar) and will begin eating off the slime coating when it gets older. Silver Dollars also are best in groups.

In that case, you probably cannot.

It is a fin nipper, yes. I thought you said you returned your comet long ago...or it was the cichlid, and we advised you to ditch the comet as well. They will outgrow your tank. The silver dollar alone will outgrow your tank. The hin fin shark will outgrow your tank. Yet...you keep buying more fish?

i keep seeing you asking questions about these HUGE fish on your posts??!!?? Dude, you can't add big fish to a 15 gallon tank. You are already overstocked as it is.

but as long as you are keeping the comet in there his growth will be stunted and he will have a shortenend lifespan.
