    Default Please help me identify this Gar and give information about it.

    I am trying to find correct information about this gar. To begin with, what is itís proper name!? I have had so many different people tell me so many different names for it. I would like to know if I am caring for it properly - though I have had it a year in a 75 gal. tank and it is doing very good so far. I have heard that it will eventually need a 200 gal. tank, etc... I feed him feeder fish but Iíve heard they have no nutritional value. Do I add aquarium salt to his water? His tank mate is a Clown Knife Fish, so far there are no problems between them. Can I put my 3 inch Piranha in with my gar? My Piranha is in a 20 gal. tank - alone - and hides almost all the time in the "rock house" I have in the tank for him. Any help with identification of this fish, feeding instructions, and answers to my questions would be helpful.
