Yeah I'm hoping with the age they will get used to each other and that's a big maybe. Yeah I have moved the tetras to a small tank. I did have a victim as. I let the feeder fish run out. So 125 gallon will
work for the Five parrots two irradescent sharks and the need nose? My only concern is the needle nose is being chased by the largest parrot already. No harm though just marking territory.

The sharks and the parrots are fine, but I am not at all sure about the NN gar. The big problem is that a couple fish get sold under the name NN gar. Depending on which one you have it could be a slight problem or a major problem.

Its not a true gar but what does that mean? As in the NN will be killed. He seems with those teeth he should be able to defend himself better then anyone.

Take another look at the picture I posted in previously. A 125 is a good start but it could never be suitable for two four foot long fish. Think more like 500 gallons.

There are two fish, a Freshwater Garfish and a Long Nosed gar, that are regularly sold as needlenose gars. Onse is native to the US and one is Native to Asia. They have different temperaments, both get to be well over a foot, and if they get big enough they will eat anything small enough for their mouth. THat would likely include you cichlids.
