    Just got some of these as Boulengerella maculata
    but for some reason I question this. Anyone out there confirm or deny what they are. Very nice looking fish.

    That is what I was thinking. Very curious to see what the general consensus is.

    Yes it is a Tank Raised Florida gar. They were inported from the far east as tank raised gar. My contact wanted to call them SA Gar but was incorrect.

    I just wanted verification
