1st what type of gar do you have? Longnose or alligator? It would depend on tank size and the size of the gar. If the gar is smaller than the jag then it would be a good change the jag would bully the gar and if the gar is big enough to eat the jag it will.

well post up a pic. i highly doubt its an alligator gar. It is most likely a longnose or florida.

croc gars are very rare and you should be able to tell if its an alligator gar easily by the snout and placement of the eye. Look up some pics on google and see if you can make a match.
