Great pics and fish! I believe we know each other? thumbs2:

Nice to have another Gar nut on the forum!

P.s I'm in love with the little Cuban! One of the few I have not yet kept.

It is about time, but my reptile collection has been consuming most of my time lately. We are still planning a large tank upgrade and a Cuban will be incorporated into this! Are you able to get Long or Short Noses over there?

hahaha you're planning a 360gallon right? it's been a long time coming!

i got my first longnose 2 years or so back. currently i have 2 longnose gars, both at 2'. recently i got my first (and perhaps the only one in my country) shortnose gar at 18" last month:)

now i'm just left with the true spotted gar:hmm3grin2orange:

Yeah, we are planning a 360-375 gallon, but don't want to do it until we get our living situation figured out (we have been planning a move that hasn't happened yet).

Congrats on the Long and Shortnose! A true Spotted is also one that I have not yet kept (that I know of). If I had a bit more ambition I could just drive a few hours and catch some though. : )

I will admit that I have been much more involved in my herp collection than fish collection lately, so new fish and bigger tanks hasn't really been a priority of mine. I have even downsized by shutting a few tanks down...:14:
