    Aquacultured Inverts, Sponges & Gorgonians?

    Who’s currently aquaculturing a variety of: • Photosynthetic sponges • Photosynthetic gorgonians • Rarer inverts • Cleaner shrimp, etc.? I’d love to support them and give them kudos. It’s hard to find a reliable source of these that are 100% aquacultured.

    Aquacultured livestock

    I'm trying to stay away from wild caught livestock for my reef tank, especially as it pertains to the fish. What are some good sites that sell aquacultured livestock, and other than clowns, what fish can be found that are aquacultured?
