Nice, I think it would be good to see. I realize that the "pros" aren't going to be enthusiastic about giving up their trade secrets, but IMO anything that can decrease the need for wild-caught is a win in my book.

I think it'd be great to read about other fish as well, like gobies, cardinals, etc.

I agree. Too many problem clowns coming through. Im certainly no expert, but I think a lot of it has to do with inbreeding. You really should try not to buy two clowns from the same clutch. Variation is a good thing.

This is a p1 this ones runs for about $450.00 us. Bcuz of the face markings its very not common to see a bali "black Picasso with these face marking .not alot of wholesaler now how good the market are these they prefer getting from the big companies in Florida , maine ,& Tennessee which a extreme Picasso runs about 45 $ each vs it cost a wholesaler 180 $ per bali in cost meaning license , shipping etc..+when u buy out the country minimum purchase is 2500 $ of fish guess you get what you pay for.
