Website about captive bread flame angels

I found this site and thought you all might be interested (well some of you). It's about researchers who have successfully raised a batch of 100 flame angel fish.. apparently a first for those numbers.

This is indeed a great thing to know about. They have been doing this for a few years as you can see from the dates on the page. Liveaquaria has been selling captive rased flames for a little while now. They are premium priced compaired to the wild caught ones but the premium is well worth it knowing that your not going to run the chance of getting a wild caught flame that was caught with dangerious methods like cyanide.

As a second point we should ALL encourage our LFS's to stock captive breed/captive rased livestock when its available.

Thanks for the site. I'm beginning my hunt for a flame angel soon.

Does being "tank bred" mean the Flames are hardier than their wild caught cousins? I read that about tank bred Clowns.

tank bred fish are more accustomed to tank life; eg; food, parameters, disease etc.. a lot more hardier..

I think that would be a two way street.. You can imagine that fish from the wild would have been exposed numerous diseases etc and would have built up anti-bodies towards them, but purely tank raised ones would I imagine be exposed to an almost sterile environment for the most part?

I would only see a benefit of captive bred ones so that they don't fret being in closed quaters and not the wide open ocean.

Its a long strech calling an aquarium a sterile enviorment. The flip argument is introduction of a wild caught species can bring those wild diseases and parasites into the aquarium.

I agree, captive raised is so much better for aquarists and our fish friends
