Hey guys the 300 gallon is set up with 12mm glass all around. Water tested, No leaks, fully fine. So what fishes in that monster? I am very exited about it. It is freshwater tank with sand substrate and some huge pieces of driftwood but no plants. 1x fluval fx 5, 2 400 gallon internal filters and a 50 gallon sump with 3, 300 watt heaters. All set and done. I have moved my spotted gar to it. He is very happy. Pls suggest fish that can go with the gar in the 300 gallon. Thank you.

Some datnoids may work, supposedly grow to 14". Also maybe a rope fish or two?

Maybe a freshwater stingray? They would go really well with the sand substrate and it has a large enough footprint for one.
You could consider a silver arowana.
How big is your gar? If he is small you could consider a knife or two.

I would stay away from silvery fish with gars. They are snappy with silver fish. Rays and bichers are good with gars as are datnoids. I would also stay away from cichlids as they have a tendency to spook gars.

silver arowanas are ok with gar....i've seen this many times.
and gars can grow as real monster...i dont think a full grown oscar can do anything to a full sized gar.

A dovii would have that tank to itself before too long

But I like how you think!

Yes, I agree... the Dovii would not want to have a tankmate for sure, its called the "Wolf Cichlid" for a reason...
