Aquaculture coral

Is there anywhere out there that sells aquacultured Red Sea Fan Coral (Gorgonia)? Any good places that sell lots of aquacultured fish and corals? I've been going to liveaquaria.com, but I know there are lots of species that can be aquacultured that aren't sold here. Anybody know of a list of all the species that can be aquacultured?

Just for a tip, Most aquacultured coral isn't aquacultured at all. Since starting into the business myself I was shocked to see most aquacultured stations simply harvest Large coral colonies/heads and move them to a coral farm and break them up unto smaller peices. After they encrust they sell them as aquacultured. Now institutions like garf are true aquaculturists. They offer 3rd and even 4th generation aquacultured specimens. Even if you have to start with a small frag of something, if aquaculture is for your peice of mind then judge the source accordingly.
