Show off your large predators

Hey, guys I am a big fan of predatory fish in both salt water and fresh water. Right now I have a 125 and a 55 gal. my 125 has an Oscar and a Clown Knife Fish both juvies and my 55 has an Alligator gar(a baby mind you) that is in quarantine and gonna stay there for about a week before he goes into my 125 and transfered to my future 220. Heres a few shots. All future monsters.

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

Thanks . That alligator gar in your pic . It's a little blurry but is that black line running down the length of his body ? If so it may be a young spotted gar and not an alligator gar, maybe even a long nosed gar.

Huge difference between spotted and alligator gar. It's a good thing though, alligator gar really don't belong in aquaria or even modest sized ponds.
