My daughter lives and fishes all the time and I never heard of a Gar until I joined this forum. LOL I even lived in FL for 15 years and had never heard of them. Neat fish.

Great looking little Florida! Nice shots too!

Settle for Trops!!! They are the best Gar ever! You can send a few my way! :hmm3grin2orange:

Well maybe put I would prefer to have one of the bigger species. I would love a Alligator gar.

Might be possible to ship some but I dont know how easy you would have with customs once they arrived.:hmm3grin2orange:

I love Gators too. I eventually plan on having one, but I'm not quite ready yet. The Trops are just a great aquarium fish. They stay relatively small (for a gar) and are very hardy. Here in the US...the rarity factor is nice too.

That would probably be a pain in the butt getting them through customs.
