Interesting thing about some of the morphs though...is that there are a handful that have actually been discovered in the wild. I read an article months ago about someone seeing some clown morph on a dive that they had taken a picture of...
Just last week I was in a discussion regarding an odd coloration of coral beauty. Though the morphs in clowns, color varies greatly in them depending on location and other such things, to the point where there are almost entirely yellow coral beauties!
That said, I'd think that we could release them even though I don't think I'd want to release a 300 dollar fish...

For corals, I absolutely agree. Fish would be the end of 99% of the FOWLR side of the hobby.

We can raise trout by the millions, but not SW hobby fish. That seems just wrong. In the freshwater industry in the 70's most fish were flown in from outside the U.S. But then fish farms and private hatcheries started providing live bearers and especially cichlids, like angelfish. I ran a small facility that supplied several dozen fish stores. I can only hope there are some breeding and hatching success's in SW. One thing for certain is the price of fish will sky rocket.
