28-06-2011 wow... that is a big one... i have an alligator gar as a pet, he is just small though and is around 12 inches long. im gonna upgrade his tank up to a 150 gallon soon so he will grow faster. i hope he would get that big someday but i have no room to fit a tank that would contain something that big. we caught him fish from the creek behind my house to eat. i feel safer feeding him wild caught fish than pet store feeder fish. sami.lynn

20-10-2004 The guy on the left is called Wil Tomey and the guy at the right is called Jacques Schouten, they are both from Holland. Actually, quit a few people have heared of this fish in Holland, especially since Jacques published about it in his book and in popular magazines.

23-02-2004 Hi!
I'm from Romania, and here the fish in the image is named "AVAT". The scientific deffinition is "Aspius Aspius".
20-09-2003 well done eoin... thats one beautiful looking fish dan.hayden
28-08-2003 In the input form the weight is in KG without decimals. In the very beginning this site was ment only for wels catfishfishing and decimals were useless. Sorry for this. As the weight of your carp was 27.5lbs, in KG it shoud be 27,5 * 2,2046215 = 12,47379652.
For weights and lenghts you can visit this web site:
26-08-2003 The whole story and photos are on our website stevie.d
31-07-2003 It's a dog food (round things with a hole inside) you can buy in any drugstore (I took the trademark away because we don't make any dog food advertisement).
It seems that carps do appreciate this dog food too...
