I've had gars in aquariums and they're a blast to watch feed. With the shape of their mouth, they don't feed like most other fish, who either bite or inhale their prey. Gars swim up alongside their prey, then whip their head to grab it perpendicularly. Then gradually work it down. Pretty cool. And very easy to keep, as they're a pretty hardy fish.
