    Default thinking of a gar tank mate


    0 Not allowed!
    ok, so i have an alligator gar (he's about 21")... i was thinking of getting him a tank mate. at the local fish store (non petsmart or petco) they have large piranha... like the size of your hand... too big to fit in his mouth. i was wondering if getting one would make a nice addition to the tank or would they try to rip each other apart?
    also i was wondering if anyone else had any ideas of good tank mates...
    thanks
    my tank is 110g

    That would be a terrible tankmate. Do you have any pics of your Gar?

    Hey so some things that could be kept with your gar are red tailed catfish, other large types of catfish, large plecos, wolf fish, Pacu, iridescent shark, Shovel nose catfish,arowana, bala shark, and a sting ray might work(flordia sting ray). Please look into all of these fish though and Look them up. I have just heard of people keeping these with there gars. I hope this helped and by the way most of these fish will out grow your tank and your gar will.
