    Greetings, My friend turned me onto this site and speaks highly of you.

    I have had a 18 month search in the SF Bay Area for a "Brazilian Gramma" and can not locate. Now lots of dealers will try to sell me a "Royal Gramma" and pass it off as a "Brazilian" but I know the difference. Do any of you know of where i can locate this fish? It is a special find, as it is my girlfriends favorite fish and I like it too.

    Any help contact me at denniswade123@aol.com

    Thanks and have a great day,
    Dennis 8)

    I have seen them online. In fact just yesterday I browsed this one:
    http://www.marinecenter.com/fish/basslets/braziliangramma/
    Looks like a very nice company, net caught fish.

    Because they say so on their site, or you know them personally?

    Gresham, I don't know them personally, although I know of people who have gotten fish from them. Do you have reason to believe they are less than scrupulous?

    Libal sucks, so I won't say anything, but, why would a company that claims to be all net caught, denote some fish as net caught and others not?

    Interesting. I didn't read the description of every fish, but that is not good to hear. Can you recommend a place that, in your opinion of course, would be the environmentally better option? Thanks!

    Fwiw - I have recently purchased my Mueller's Copperband from The Marine Center. I know this or at least believe that this fish is net-caught vs. cyanide caught as I understand that this particular fish can only be found in Australian waters where cyanide catching is a big NO.

    This is/was a very healthy fish. Copperbands are notorious to get to eat in general and finding a nice fat healthy one seems to be very far and few in between.

    I don't know if all the fish being sold in/at The Marine Center are net caught nor do I believe it is advertised as so. I try to pick fish that are net caught, but if I stick with my goal in keeping Fairy Wrasses for this tank upgrade this indeed will be a challenge.

    I'd suspect most TMC's fish are sourced from clean places.
