It has nothing to do with difficulty. It is diet. You can't duplicate the proper diet in captivity, due to the extremely small size of the live food required. Some experts have had limited success, but with overall dismal results. It is well documented, just do a google search.
I think this is an interesting discussion. The same individuals who would never remove a fish from the ocean because it is not capable of living in captivity.... these same people have no problem killing thousands of fry that had no chance of surviving as well. Why "create" what you can not care for properly? I'm not expressing an opinion, just pointing out an interesting contradiction in our hobby.
