This fish has many trade names, Wide Bar Silver Dollar, Black Bar Silver Dollar, and Wide Bar Schomburgkii. They swim in the middle column of the tank and are very active schooling fish. Best kept in groups of at least five fish. Generally peaceful community fish and can be kept with other larger peaceful species. Much smaller fish may be eaten. Myleus mainly occupy the middle and top areas of the aquarium, so it is a good idea to select tankmates that occupy both the bottom of the tank to add contrast. Larger peaceful catfish such as plecos and doradids would be a good choice.
