Spotted Gar (Lepisosteus oculatus) are $16 each, plus shipping, and are about 10-13″ long.  These tough, toothy, swamp predators are methodical hunters of small prey such as minnows, tadpoles, bugs, and frogs.  Because these fish are built for low oxygen-high temperature swamp conditions, they are easy to keep and resilient.  They gulp air at the surface and their bodies are plated with some of the toughest scales in the fish world.  Gar can tolerate long periods without food and can be kept with other fish too large for them to eat.   They are an interesting predator to watch in the aquarium as they slowly stalk their prey until its in striking distance.   Contact us at
