Silver Dollar Eggs
Hi. Can anyone tell me what Silver Dollar eggs look like?
I'm not sure if I can see Oscar eggs or S.D eggs.
First I was sure they were from the Oscar, but then I got fry which must be from the S.D's as the Oscar is alone in with them.
May be I have eggs from both but just not seen 2 types of eggs!
Any help appreciated.

Could find no egg pictures.
Silver Dollars often spawn in schools. Recommend water with the following values: a pH 6.0-6.5, a water hardness of 4-8 dH, and a water temperature of 79-82°F (27-28°C). Have floating plants and slightly dimmed light. About 2000 eggs are produced by each female. The eggs fall to the bottom. Remove the adult fish after the spawning. The fry hatch in 3 days, and are free swimming after 6-9 days. They first eat plankton, but later, will take vegetable flakes.
2000 eggs per setting? Wow!

If you want any babies you should remove the parents. Especially that Oscar. They will be a nice snack for him!
