Re: where can i get a freshwater sponge?
I have never seen any in commercial aquarium trade. I almost think you'd need to collect them out of the wild, and am wondering if wild collection is legal? At the very least you'd want to know what species were present in your locale and confirm that the ones that you were looking for were not endangered (you could end up getting arrested for collecting endangered species if you're not careful) and be very careful that you know exactly what they need and have your set up perfect (do you need to culture green water or yeast to feed them? Best have that in place first) before you go take your specimen, so that you don't get it home and have it die. Its a big responsibility taking something from the wild.
