    I'm glad you like the fish, gar are pretty cool. However, if you can't get a far larger tank within a year you really need to return him. Please do not practice inappropriate/irresponsible fish keeping.
    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.

    Im trying to get a 180 gallon. I think that is 72x24x24. But I might end up giving him back if I can't get a bigger tank, he's definately good for now.

    Even a 180 gallon is too small. gm72 said at least a 220 gallon so that would be saying like puting an oscar in a 55 gallon. Really, the oscar should have a 75-90 gallon. And the gar should really have a 300 gallon. You can get yours here. Scroll all the way down. http://glasscages.com/?sAction=ViewCat&lCatID=2 Nice pictures by the way!

    The difference between 220 and 180 is like the difference between a 90 and a 75. Im pretty sure its just height and its not a case of bio load its a case of room.

    Now it seems like I have a chance to get a 180 gallon. I think I'll give it 4-6 months and see how things are looking then.
