I’m so excited about the marine bettas!! That is awesome!


Don’t think anyone has mentioned them but I’d love to see captive bred spotted drums! Beautiful fish that are incredibly hard to find.

Any of the hawiian fish that were banned. Would love to have access to achillies, chevron, and kole tangs again.
Both chevrons and achilles are found elsewhere in the world, the chevrons can be collected in the Philippines i believe and the achilles can be collected in Tahiti. they aren't gone from the hobby, just less abundant. also i believe all the kole tang's except for the OG Yellow Eye Kole are still available, so Ctenochaetus Truncatus and Ctenochaetus Flavicauda are still available. Although captive bred variants of these would be extremely nice to have......

you can get captive bred inverts at algae barn https://www.algaebarn.com/shop/captive-bred/invertebrates/
I haven't bought from them so I don't know if they have any issues
Unfortunately that isnt much help to me, I am in the UK, and I doubt they would ship it all the way from the states, even if they did I would be skeptical whether it would be alive by the time it got here and cleared customs assuming they even let it through at all. Might be easier to fly over there, pick it up and try hiding it in my suit case lol.

Even though it's already been mentioned a bunch...

Fairy and flasher wrasses! Love these guys! If it's feasible, I'm sure it'd be a moneymaker.

Close second (third)...

Black Cardinalfish (Apogonichthyoides melas). I like their prehistoric look. ORA has them but it's been a pain to get my LFS to order one in for me. I'd rather just buy them straight from you.

PS. I'm very happy with the court jester goby and starry goby I got from you guys. Healthy fish, active in the first hours out of the bag, and the starry has grown a lot in the past month!

So here at Biota we've had success in every major family of marine ornamental fishes and I was wondering what species you want to see captive-bred next? Maybe we can make that dream a reality!

For attention, below is a video of our first ever captive-bred red coris wrasse at 49dph which was a really fun one.

Potters angels, multicolor angels, and flameback angels

Would love captive bred dwarf lions
golden dwarf moray
Scopas and tomini tangs
May already be a thing but black capped basslet.

I’m guessing most of the above aren’t reasonable but you did say dream fish....
