Silver Dollar

I got 3 ghost shrimp a couple if days ago and can only seem to find 1 of them. I was wondering if my 2 silver dollars would of ate them? I also have some small tetras and a fully grown lamp eye tetra.

it could have been the fish, they could have just died and got eaten, or if one is a really big ghostie it could have killed and eaten the others. All scenario's are possible.

How big are your silver dollars? full grown I have fed them feeder goldfish the are very aggressive. silver dollars are in the Characidae family which are closely related to piranha and pacu...To be honest they will eat everything in your tank same size or smaller than them if they get hungry...

Another thing is are you feeding your silver dollars any greens? They prefer plants and veggies but will eat anything as already said when hungry.
