They are a family prehistoric fish which have snouts that look look very similar to crocs/gators.

Most of them are pretty docile except for few species.

Gators are the most aggressive and biggest of the gar family while florida is commonly sold as spotted in our LFS. These 2 are the most common gar species found in sg.

Chances of PNT attacking them is much higher than them attacking the PNT.

Those should be fine. Avoid acidic food.

Why acidic food isn't encouraged? Any reason?

OK easy example... Can your stomach take it if you eat raw lemons for your meals frequently?

The PNT stomach is even more sensitive than humans. Tomatoes are deemed too acidic for them already. Once a while as treat is OK but not on frequent basis
