A few days ago my gar started eating anything that drops by his mouth... Including fingers. I was feeding him cichlid pellets until I got out to my LFS and I got some Hikari food sticks (It says good for carnivorous fish and had a pic of an arowana on it) and he loves those. It's great not worrying of him dying of starvation anymore =)(he hadn't eaten for about 2-3 months). I'm going to move him into a 120/150 gallon within a year.
