    I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.

    i will read it a bit later but that is a HUGE accomplishment but i know we are still far from getting there. the demand is so high and the rate of which breeders can breed certain fish is low. you need tons of tank space and perfect a environment to do so. I do see them in the next few years not pulling hardly any clowns out because they are so commonly bred in tank aquaria but there will still be a few wild caught oddities that i'm sure would hit the market.
