which Gar species?
 
well u may know me from those other posting of the silver arowana and the fahaka puffer.I will be getting a 240 gallon with my 6" silver arowana to grow into and well no one has given me a good type of fish to go with my silver arowana in the 240.I was thinking of a florida gar but im not familiar with how big this type of gar will grow too.Does anyone know how big do they get?And if it can be compatible with the aro as of being only in its young stage in early developing life?

well when my dad had tropicals he had a alligator gar, with aros and a couple of clown knifes. they was bo problem with them, just be carful you dont get the gar to small to fit into the aros mouth

My florida gar topped out around 60cm/2'. Stay away from alligator gars, they get 9-10 feet long.

They should be just fine and tropicals get around 2'. Watch the gar as they are smart hunters and if large enough will put down an arow.

The cost will depend on the Law of Supply and Demand in your area. The higher the demand for a gar species, of course, the price will increase.
