Spotted gars

Just inherited two 24"-26" spotted gars....thick as your wrist, too....they should help with tidying-up anything that passes on in my other tanks.

I'll state this again, Toirtis has the most awesome fish ever and I am in a constant state of jealousy.

Somebody I know had rescued them from her work (a pet shop) a while back (when they were still small) and is about to move and cannot take them with her, so she gave them to me.
