Wild vs. Domestic

Posted By: Nes.

Subject to my recent dissapointment (coupled with quite a few in the past) I'm looking more towards buying domestically bred (yes - hormones :D) clown loaches from the Chech Republic.

Are there any benefits to either wild caught or domestic anyone can share?

All my cls in the past have been wild caught.

My main concerns are the parasites/inborn bacterias wild caught carry, what comparitivy is the prevalence of these parasites in domestically bred specimens?

Could a mixed stock pass the parasites from a wild caught to domestically bred specimen?
