Just picked up two young (2.5") silver gar (Ctenolucius hujeta) to my 65 gallon planted tank! Very excited as everything I read about these guys is perfect for my tank. The one thing I'm concerned about is they say wild specimen reach 12-28" but aquarium species max at about 8-10", I'm hoping that's not stunting in action, they claim up to a 10 year life. Theyre supposedly actually rather peaceful, but if they do grow too big for my 65 or become aggressive to I will certainly rehouse them. Pics after acclimation process!
