    Wild nem va Aquacultured nem

    I just picked up a BTA from my LFS, and I was planning on finding a Black Widow BTA to go into the same tank eventually.

    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.

    Availability of Captive Bred Marine Fish and Cultured Corals in the UK.

    Some time ago I made the decision to try and source all my livestock from Captive Bred Fish Stock and Cultured Corals.
