    so for a wile I've been looking at getting one but never came across one, about 3 weeks ago I was offered one and I could not resist and I ordered it. it arrive extremely skinny and I was lucky enough to have him eating on the second day of arrival. he comes to take his food from the tweezers as I would like to get him used to eating from the tweezers. also for him to associate the tweezers with food...
    Before people smash me for how big he gets and so on, I do know all of this and have the new tank on the cards to be built before the end of the year... for now he is in the 3000l+ and will be there till the new tanks done....

    Is that a Platinum Alligator Gar?
    Beautiful fish, but rather you than me.
