    I just got a spotted gar. This is the true gar type ( not a needlefish ). He might get a bit big for my tank and might eat my needlefish but appearently my oscar's safe. When I saw it for sale I was like wooooooooowwwwwww so I had to get it. I've never seen a true gar for sale before. Pics soon. It's gonna be pretty cool having a dinosaur in my tank.

    You shouldn't really get a fish that you know you can't provide an proper habitat for. Thats a wee bit irresponsible.
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

    I hope you have a MUCH larger tank in your very near future. Your 75 is tiny for a fish that size. Unfortunate that they gave you incorrect information and unfortunate that you took said information. The fish will get about 2 feet long. You'll need at least, and I mean AT LEAST a 220 gallon tank.

    Goleafs, the following statement does not only apply to you here:
    Research people, research. DO NOT BUY FISH UNLESS YOU RESEARCH THEM FIRST!
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.
