Remarks: Blue Hook or Wide Bar Silver Dollars tend to eat plants in aquaria, so plastic plants or hardy plants like Java Fern or Anubias should be used. These fish have light blue bodies with a thick black bar that connects the base of the dorsal tin to the start of the anal fin. Instead of the orange anal fin that is found in true M. schomburgkii, these fish have a light blue iridescent anal fin. They may exhibit orange cheeks as well.
