wild caught fish
 
I found an exelent online fish reatailer for saltwater fish they have exelent photography and there fish look very healthy.unfortunetly i found out that all there fish corals and annenomys are wild cought.Besides conservation is there any other reasons y i should not buy wild cought fish?

A majority of saltwater fish is wild-caught. Some will never breed in captivity hence catching them in the wild to ensure availability of stocks.

By the way, I once tried this fish. Easy to keep IME.

Hope you can get a larger tank soon in which you'll be able to keep shoals of those fish.

I am considering buying a 46 gallon instead of a 30,but im not sure how well it will fit in my room. :D

4-6 Banggais will fit in it. 4 is preferable though to make sure tank is not overstocked.

You'll need one anemone per pair of clowns as they established territory on the anemones.http://www.tropicalfish.site5.com/ubb/wink.gif

There are several species of clownfish. All fall on the category of Amphiprion.http://www.tropicalfish.site5.com/ubb/wink.gif
Nemo is just an Amphiprion ocellaris. :nicefish:
