This is a discussion on Pics of my new Gar and Old within the Monster FISH!! forums, part of the Freshwater Species category; Just wanted to show a pair of pics of my new Florida Gar I picked up on Monday from Calc ...
Nice to see the little guy is doing very well with the big brother in a very good home!!
is the big guy on pellet yet James?
I don't know if he will ever be on pellet. He shows no interest in them. Although I do enjoy hand feeding him strips of basa fillet.
Very nice pattern on that large gar. Hope it stay that way when it grows bigger. Of all the gars I like the personality of florida gars as my florida gar is the gar that would go infront of the tank and beg for food. Kinda like a puppy dog wagging it's tail.
I never saw any aggression from the Jardini, but I think it was just so active that the Gar with his gentle demeanor just faded away. I have just sold my Jardini tonight and am already seeing the Gars personality return. It is also quite fascinating to see the two Gars interacting. I definitely advise anyone who is interested in a Gar to get two or more.
Thanks for the compliment on his patter, I just got the exact some compliment from Xander on MFK. Kudos to IPU in richmond for selling me such a great looking Gar last January.
Very nice, I can't wait to find one of my own~!
i also got one of these gars from Calc.
just wondering how you ID it as florida gar?
