    I have a 75gal tank. Its currently unstocked and Im looking to do a fresh water setup and gar were one of the fish I was considering. I'm reading many different suggestions on tank size. Is my tank too small? Look forward to getting opinions from people who know. Thanks in advance.

    For most species of gar a 180 gallon is the minimal size tank.

    75 will be ok for a while, it will eventually need a bigger tank. My friend has a gar in a 20 gallon, needless to say I freaked out on him....that poor fish is probably stunted by now :(

    gar are very cool fish, but they will need a big footprint. 180g would be the smallest I would go.

    How long do you think I would be able to keep one? Also what are other options of interesting fish I can keep without getting a bigger tank. I'm read up pretty well on salt water fish but the fresh water have just recently become interesting to me.

    I would just stock the tank you have.
    What type of fish do you want? Like aggressive fish, maybe schooling fish, or cory's,you know what I mean? Like what are you looking for? A big aggressive fish or a nice community tank?
