    I would say no as the labs will be far too aggresive for the dollars and silver dollars like to be in groups of atleast 4 anyway.

    +3.

    12gal isn't large enough for even one yellow lab so I certainly would not be considering adding anything else. Minimum 40 gal tank just to keep the Yellow Labs & even then I would be much happier recommending 55gal+. Do you intend to upgrade thier tank?

    Oh, ok. That's a relief. Thanks for updating your info & clearing that up. x

    I'm still with the others that the Labs will be too aggressive for the Silver Dollars.
