Biota Hawaii has been working hard to produce captive bred Blue Tang for the aquarium hobby. We have these available in small numbers right now, but will be amping up production, so we plan for these to be a regular addition to our catalog in 2023.
Amazing! Biota captive bred F1 "show size" WYSIWYG Borbonius Blotched Anthias now available. This species is quite rare in the trade, and wild caught specimens typically don't acclimate well to life in captivity and are also incredibly difficult to feed. These fish were born in captivity in 2017 at Biota Palau and have been pampered their entire lives. You simply won't find Borbonius that are better conditioned to life in aquariums. This anthias species has a longer lifespan than most smaller species, so you can expect many more years from this pet fish.
Each of the three available has a different personality, and we are really enjoying our time with these intelligent, inquisitive fish here at Biota Florida. As you can see they all love to eat anything including Easyreefs DKI pellets (you can add these to your Biota order). Link in comments

Biota is offering captive bred Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse produced in conjunction with our partners at the Oceanic Institute of Hawaii Pacific University.
The Biota captive bred Cleaner Wrasse is a great worker fish in aquariums. They pick and clean pests and parasites off larger fish and will even create specific cleaning stations.
As wild caught this species is notoriously difficult to keep in captivity because they don't adapt well to aquarium life and they don't like to eat prepared foods, instead preferring to clean large fish. It's also difficult to know the age of a wild adult and if it is at the end of its lifespan.
Captive breeding solves these problems. Our Biota Cleaner Wrasse eat a variety of prepared pellets like Easyreefs DKI pellets and frozen foods. Being born in captivity they're well adapted to aquarium life, and we know the exact age of these young fish so they will live their full lifespan in your tank.
