    Nice guys. FYI to everyone jsodwi (John) is the one selling me a tropical gar. Check out his other sales, great prices all around!

    Lep, I'm pleasantly surprised to see you have 3 Floridas. I wouldn't accept any less with your username as such!

    Eventually I will enhance the list to show what species everyone has in parenthesis. Makes the numbers look a lot more impressive when trops and cubans and whatnot start popping up.

    Ok listing more info on the "pet" gars than the lab gars as a lot of that research is still ongoing (so those details will be minimal).

    "pet fish"

    20g long:

    2x yearling spotted gars (one is a short-body individual; other in training for non-live food and will be added to larger tank).

    120g wide (aka "gar-den") :

    longnose gar
    shortnose gar
    spotted gar
    Florida gar
    alligator gar

    270g (aka "gar-den II") :

    Florida gar
    4x tropical gar
    2x Cuban gar
    crocodile gar "type II" (A. spatula x L. oculatus)

    ===

    Research specimens:

    ~39 x spotted gar (yearlings)
    ~6 x spotted gar (YOY)
    2x Florida gars (YOY, 2 localities)
    "shortnose" gar


    ages of fishes run from YOY to 6 years for verified ages, large Cuban gars are at least 7 years old.

    will try to get some full-tank shots up in the near future, for now, here is a shot of the lab with the YOY spotted gar experiment from last year:
