    What size tank?
    What are you feeding it?
    Is your tank cycled? What are your readings for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates?
    How long have you had it?

    Maybe it seems dead . . . Because it is dead?
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    If OP put that gar in an undersized and uncycled tank, it may actually be dead.

    fish like these should be by themselves in their own tank until fully acclimated to your tank and feeding schedule. they are not good fish to pickup on an 'impulse buy'. what are you trying to feed it?

    I'd be surprised if this OP guy comes back, he asked his question then immediately left

    Probably in a very different time zone given that he posted at 6:48 this morning.
