Ah, I live in the Hills district.

The best cichlid shop I have ever been to in Syd is Lam's in Parramatta

Fish Rock in Eastwood and Hornsby have lots of good priced rainbows.

There are some more general shops around, which still have a good variety, like Auburn aquarium etc

If I were to get 3 more silver dollars, 5-6 tiger barbs 3 clown loaches, maybe 5 african cichilids and a pleco. Would that work?

Depends on what kind of cichilids you are going to get. Some of them will kill your other fish for sure. Even with a 150 g tank, IMO 5 silver dollars, 3 clown loaches and a pleco could be over loading the tank when the are full grown.

Silver dollars get about 6" big, Clown loaches get about 12". Most common pleco get about 16" too. All of them are big poop machines. That's big bio load for your tank.

Hi Serkan!

I beleive the best fish in order tolive along side your 'Silver Dollars' might be:

Fish of similar size & peaceful; If yours are adults then perhaps they may be able to defend themselves & be mixed with 'some Cichlids' (Be Careful here!) Silver Dollars however do mix well with:
Swords
Moons
Large Tetras
SomeGouramis
Barbs
Catfish

Most life span of a Silver Dollar is 4 -7 years! So what are the age of yours??

Wishing you all the best....
