Yeah definitely, but i meant an alligator gar in captivity will grow much less due to the restricted ammounts of space. Although the average size of 25 to 44 inches of a spotted gar is much more satisfiying than the 60+ of the alligator!

55 Gallon- Empty
125 Gallon- CKF and Tiger Oscar
220 Gallon- To come...
