Red Fin Silver Dollar fish grow up to 6 inches in length and require approximately a 75 gallon tank or larger when full grown. Also, since they are schooling fish, it is better to keep them in the group. They mostly swim around in groups, thus creating a beautiful community that is delightful to watch.
