    Tough call, My understanding is it is very difficult to get them to eat anything other than live food.

    Also, Your tank may be far too small for them depending on the variety you have. Do you have their latin name?
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    hejuta gar need live foods. you can try bite-sized frozen shrimp and such after the gar has been fattened up and very comfortable in your tank.

    as i suspected, could get costly. wil have to mass produce guppies. does any one think a brine shrimp hatchery would be a good idea for a steady suppy of food?

    I'm not sure brine shrimp would keep them full. maybe start breeding guppies or other live feeder fish?
