Giving away a silver dollar and 45g tank & stand (Gone)


I have 2 silver dollars, one 10 yrs old and the other about 5 yrs old. The 10 yrs old died yesterday peacefully. I know it's very unlikely someone would adopt a silver dollar in this plantedtank forum since silver dollars are vegetarians, but they like to be in a group and I'm not looking to add more silver dollars so I hope someone who has a non-planted tank and has silver dollar would adopt this lonely one.
I have this one for 5 yrs but I rarely saw him eat anything, he doesn't eat flakes, vegetables nor even plants so he is only about 2.5". Hoping to have someone knows silver dollar well and give him a better home.
I will try to take a picture of the fish tonight
Pick up from Flushing or I can deliver to Flushing and Sheepshead Bay area.

Do you think he will be comfortable a 16 gallon bowfront tank? If so, i can ask if my friend is looking for any more fish.

16g might be too small for silver dollars. The ones I had for 8-10 yrs were about 4" and they swim at fast speed sometimes. They do better in a group of at least 4 in a long tank 36"+
Thanks for checking anyway

There's many types of silver dollars that they don't get classified at least in the stores and sold under the same common name.

The typical ones you normally get can get up to 6", i have a few that are big then I have a few others that look like red hooks but the hooks are small and red and white tips but the are smaller and then I have 1 spotted silver dollar thats' the smallest at only 3" long.

I got all these for at least 4-5 years now so they should be adult. I'd love to take it but I'm looking for a home for these.

You're right most of the LFS just use name silver dollar for all types of silver dollar and that's how I ended with two different types from two different LFS
Here is a picture of mine, not a good pic due to the stock light. I will be giving out my 45 gallon tank and stand as soon as I got my new tank set up

I don't know what type of silver dollar this is but even he's different than the old ones that died he followed them around like he's own kind, so I assume he will be happy to just have some other silver dollar with him.
I'm getting a 46 bowfront. Got the stand from Petco already, waiting for the back ordered eco-complete and ordered the tank from Petland but also waiting.

Are you interested? The tank has been running for more than 15 yrs, the stand is made out of nice wood (better than my new stand from petco). I should be giving it out in about 3 months.

Will be giving the fish to a LFS or Petco by this weekend, I will be giving away a 45g tank and stand after I give away the silver dollar and empty it out. Let me know if anyone wants to take anything.

The external filter is already in the new tank but I have 2 hang over the tank filters currently running on this old tank, I don't mind to give them away if someone wants them, there is also a box of refill. I have a few air pumps, one whisper I have it for 9 months but it's making noise, there is another one that sat somewhere for couple years and I recently found it and used it for few weeks. 2 small heaters…. Maybe I should make a list of what I have for grab, lol

Are you sure you only want air pump? How about the lovely silver dollar?
