Tip of the Day – 1/30/2012


Even though aquacultured fish, coral, and invertebrates are usually more expensive than their wild-caught counterparts, aquarium hobbyists should make every attempt to buy captive-bred animals first. There are a lot of different home grown species available to the industry, and the list grows by leaps and bounds on a yearly basis. Besides being better on the environment, aquacultured animals are hardier and do better in captivity long term. They are easier to acclimate to the aquarium life and readily take prepared foods, not needing live foods like many finicky wild-caught fish.
