I recently had some Silver Dollars in with a few juvenile SA Cichlids. They are fast but too nervous. They didn't last long. I've had a couple of Opaline Gouramis in with the cichlids for about 6 months now. They are very fast and really don't take any #%$& from the cichlids. They are all one big happy family...lol The danios are a good choice but as far as silver dollars go...way too skittish for me. When they get stressed, they get ick very easy (in my experiences).

I used to have silver dollars with my geos and angels. They were too jittery and were always getting spooked whenever I approached the tank. I rehomed them this year. That's what I love about cichlids, they go towards you instead of away from you.

Mono Argents or Mono Sebae may be a different avenue.
They like Brackish water and Argets can even be kept in marine water, but I have seen them used as Dithers with bigger S/C Americans before to good effect.
800 liter all male mixed tank. Some people have a skeleton in their closet, I keep mine in my fish tank.
