I should leave this one to HOLLYWOOD on breeding P. nattereri. BUT, few fishes imported today are "wild caught". Some come from Singapore where they are bred for color and then exported out. Some are raised on fish farms in South America. Its a difficult question to answer because you won't get a straight answer from the exporter to the importer if these fish were actually picked directly from the wild or a fish farm and then shipped directly to you (meaning pet store). From my talks with Labbish, fish for the ornamental industry are held in holding facilities prior to being purchased for export (importers/exporters). That may be where real wild and fish farm fish get mixed. I really don't know. I suggest you ask George Fear (Shark Aquarium) and maybe he can shed some light on this.
