    You should move him to a different aquarium as the current inhabitants will not work out long term.

    yeah, definitely not a good tankmate situation, and it will eventually get bad. better to adjust now and save yourself the problems. gar being on pellets is a good thing, in that matter the fish is just fine--

    MonstersRus trust what everyone is saying with feeding your gar pellets and not feeders. Its cheaper in the long run, trust me.
