Food what kind, how often: the Silver Dollars get algae wafers and algae flakes, 2-3 times a day; Oscar: pellets, algae wafers, Blood worms, trying to get him to eat lettuce.

The biggest Silver Dollar is starting to look sick. He spends a lot of his time hanging out in a corner, not schooling with the others. His breathing is also fairly rapid, but not gasping at the surface. He also looks slightly bloated. One more thing: he has a wound (a white patch) on his head that he got from running into the filter, a few weeks back and it still hasn't healed though it doesn't look infected.
