Water Conditions

Atractosteus spatula, commonly known as the Alligator Gar, is a large and ancient predatory fish species native to freshwater habitats in North and Central America. It is one of the largest freshwater fish in North America and is famous for its alligator-like appearance, hence the name "Alligator Gar."


  • Alligator-Like Features: The Alligator Gar has a long, cylindrical body with a broad snout, resembling the head of an alligator. Its sharp teeth and armored scales contribute to its prehistoric appearance.
  • Size: In the wild, Alligator Gars can reach impressive lengths of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters). In captivity, they can grow up to 4 to 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 meters) in length.

Water Conditions:

  • Temperature: Maintain a tropical water temperature range between 72°F to 80°F (22°C to 27°C) for the well-being of Alligator Gars.
  • pH Level: Aim for a neutral to slightly acidic pH level between 6.5 and 7.5 to replicate their natural habitat.
  • Water Hardness: Provide moderately hard water with a hardness level between 8 and 15 dGH.

Tank Setup:

  • Large Aquarium: Due to their eventual size, Alligator Gars require a very spacious aquarium of at least 300 gallons (1135 liters) when fully grown.
  • Open Swimming Space: Provide ample open swimming space as these fish are active and need room to move.
  • Secure Lid: Alligator Gars are skilled jumpers, so a secure lid is essential to prevent them from escaping the tank.

Feeding Habit:

  • Carnivorous Diet: The Alligator Gar is a powerful predator and feeds on a variety of live and frozen foods.
  • Feeder Fish and Meaty Foods: Offer a diet consisting of feeder fish (e.g., goldfish, minnows), shrimp, worms, and other meaty foods.


  • Solitary Species: Alligator Gars are territorial and should be kept alone or with other large, aggressive fish species.


  • Due to their large size and predatory nature, keeping an Alligator Gar requires a considerable commitment and dedication.
  • They are not suitable for community tanks with smaller or more passive fish, as they may be viewed as prey.
