    In my tank i have 4 black widow tetras, 2 golden black widow tetras(all 6 are roughly 1.5 - 2 inches long), 1 Ghost Knife(5inches), 3 silver dollars(2 are 1 inch other is 4inches), 3 fully grown gouramis, 2 silver sharks(3inches long), 1 bristlenose cat(2inches)

    Only now have i noticed in owning my silver dollar he hasnt eaten and plant or vegetarian food, he eats what i feed the other fish which is flake food and blood worms, i have offered plants and peas and lettuce, he has rejected all which was later eaten by birstlenose and ghost

    the two recently bought 1 inch silver dollars are the same only eating flake and blood worms is this bad that they will not eat plants in the tank?
    Lots of snakes and lizards
    1 Golden Pearl Flowerhorn.
    1 18" Nano reef.

    I wouldn't worry to much. If they need any of the nutrition in the vegetarian food they will likely choose to eat it since you provide it. Many fish becomes more vegetarian as they grow older and as your fish are still small they might be more interested in flakes at the moment.
