I had this go wrong last week,put a Motoro pup (5 inch disc)in my 180gallon with my Asian gar and they went for the same piece of shrimp....the gar grabbed the Motoro by the tail and whipped it across the tank.they are now in separate tanks

I had gars with my rays it worked great for the most part but when the rays searched the bottom for food they would occasionally latch on to the rays. I eventually got rid of them after the big gar got drug around by my male rays claspers. I think they'd be fine if I did keep them together but didn't want to risk it.

Here's a video for the size comparison.

Harsh, how is the Motoro now? How big was the gar?

Haha. Thought it was you. Did they all come from golds or did you find them somewhere else?
