aquacultured livestock?

Okay, yet another question. My goal with this tank is to someday have a beautiful reef set up with a bare minimum of be-reef-t creatures, in other words, only rock and livestock that is captively bred. I feel pretty strongly about the damage being done to the eco-system by the pet-trade, and I feel that if I've gone so far out of my way to captive breed my snakes and only buy captive bred ones, I should show the same respect towards the ocean. Now having got on my soapbox, does anybody know of good suppliers of captive bred livestock? I don't plan on stocking for another two-three months, but I'd love to start planning the`plan now

Live Aquaria.com has a fairly large tank bred section.

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/s...&TopCatId=1500

I tried to do a quick net search, but all I could find were wholesalers. Perhaps you could call around to LFS's in your area, and inquire about their fish. Maybe they buy tank bred fish.

Good luck.

I believe www.etropics.com has a nice selection of acucultured stuff as well. They have an affiliation with liveaquaria.
