I read this posting on PFK - I love Nathan Hill's blog posts. It is an interesting topic, and one that I find myself wondering about often. Unfortunately. . . there is no 'right' answer as to which is better, anyway. I'd say the best route would be to get fish that were home-bred locally in the tank of a trusted acquaintance, though even then there is the question of the parent fish's origins. The pros and cons to each side are valid. I'm finding that I often have no way of finding out at the shop level (depending on the shop, of course) where, exactly, my fish originally came from. . .I get very odd looks when I ask! For the most part, I have to assume that they're farm-raised. . . and having seen some of these farms - it makes me sad!

LOL! So much to learn in this hobby!
