it really does look a bit like a koi! Wrong shape, though, but for sure one weird looking fish.

I wonder what it looks like from the side?

Hey, welcome to ofl!
Posting pics is simple.
Open a photobucket account, upload pics and copy/paste the last line, that appears if you click the uploaded pic.
Thats the image code Then we can see what you are selling... I know there's some members that still want a Gar, but again, the money might be the problem. How did you get the fish,and how did you make the price?[img]

We rescued him from a canal after Tropical Storm Isaac flooded us. I came up with the price after doing some research, talking to exotic fish dealers, and finding the last few selling prices were around $5,000.00

I knew what it was and that it is very rare. My father and brother are both commercial fisherman so I am well educated about fish and they helped with the catching. Lol. Isn't it awesome?! Once in a lifetime experience... unforgettable!

It's a rare fish allright, but after i asked around, it's indeed "what the crazy guy will pay for it." as we say in Holland
Prizes vary from 3,5K to 5K indeed...

Count me out, I'll stick to my own Gar.
Hope you get a good home for him and a good prize. :)
