btw imho it's a florida Gar, not a spottted, but heck, who cares....

take care, Gars are prone to getting diseases when the water is too warm....


hey Maestro, where have you been? thanks for the correction...
i was told it was spotted gar... yeah.. it doesn't matter as long as it is healthy...
my grand kids called it crocodile fish :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

any hint what temp they should be in? the tank is around 27 deg C (80 deg F)

feels good seeing you around!

nice trade I love gars and he is cute :)

your pacu was nice to but gars are much better fish; I keep thinking about getting one but same as others have concerns on feeding them and keeping the fish happy.

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

Hey brro, living at your place it could well be an alligator gar...which will have a blast with any smaller snacks, uhm, tankmates.
how fast has it grown?
I said Florida, but again, in the Filipines you might as easily gain access to the real spotted.
let's see what he does.
following close, Paul.
