I saw this video on youtube with a xanthic gar in it and was wondering if anyone has ever seen these or had one before and if anyone knew where you could buy one. Any information would be appreciated, Thanks!

But xantic comes from yellow, and this one is completely white.
And I am pretty sure that it's gonna be very hard to find either xanthic or white gar..
I saw a completely black longnose at a LFS in Holland, but before i could ask for the price the next time , surely it was gone... :(

i bet that guy lives in florida. and he probably catches. or buys from someone who catches live fish from the area. .... that looks like a bowfin. they have become native in many areas out there. (from what i understand).

Yeah I dont know if this one is died or what because the one the fisherman (so he says) caught has some black.
but for $15,000 I would be very sad if that died.
Here is the link for the gar for sale if you want to check it out or maybe even BUY IT lol.

I aggree on the white Gar, even the Xanthic morph, I'd like to keep those but this looks like someone kept beating up his KOI until it looked like this.
Gar being an ambush predator, no,no,no, this is rather awfull, and i wouldn't pay a dime for it.
How will it ever catch a pray, when it's looking like it's going to the carnival... :blink:
I know you cannot argue about taste, but this is NOT what i consider a true gar, even if it's the only one in the world.

And for that prize, you can get a good size tank, and have yourself a Cuban Gar as well.
Anyone aggree??? :S

Now this one i'd like to have, but it'll need a massive tank:
