    You're risking a broken back or a dead gar with that small of a gar in that large of a tank.

    it is not ridiculous, small gar in big tank can led to broken back, even death gar! They can build up speed in a tank that big then bang their head into the glass, they can't do that in small tanks!

    With some fish, especially as a juvenile this is a very real possibility.African aros are one thing that comes to mind.

    try put a betta in a 200G tank and you will see it starve to death! Some fish that too skittish or not active will not be able to find food in a large tank.
    I.E: the bowfin, marble catfish that i see in the 10000 gallon tank at the Cabela's near me, they will stay at 1 spot most of the time and the Aquarium manager have to bring food to their mouth to keep them from starving!
