Question for experienced silver dollar owners: Are there any concerns with combining juveniles (1 in to 1.5 in long) with grown adults? Or should I wait until the juveniles are larger? TIA

What are the dimensions of the tank? I don't think a 50 gal is large enough, so I wouldn't add any more.

Tank is 46gal bowfront .. 36in wide X 20in high X 14in deep.
So, if I had a 125gal tank, I assume I could add juveniles with adults w/o any issues.

Definitely not large enough for any silver dollars. I'd rehome the ones you have or upgrade to a larger tank. I would think juvies and adults would be fine together in a much larger tank.
