    Gars are rather timid and u less the tank in upwards of 200 gallons I don't think it would work out in the long term

    Not these one. I’m not gonna get a fish over a foot and a half. The silver gets to be about 10-12 inch and I haven’t gotten the Asian needle yet. So you think the Oscars would kill it

    I knew which species you were talking about and my point still stands....unless the tank is huge the oscar will just bother the gar too much causing it to probably bash around the tank and hurt itself...cichlids and gars don't mix well unless it's a gigantic tank with plenty of space

    Juveniles can live with the plecos, but once mature they will fight.
