This is new for me!  I know that many ex-communist countries are very
advanced in breeding of aquarium fish, so this is possible.  I know too 
that at least some Epalzeorhynchus species (closely related to SAEs) are 
bred in captivity, probably normally with hormone injections.  The real 
SAE  is very common fish here in Finland, and they are always imported 
from SE Asia, not from Central or East European fish farms.  (I have to
remember to ask local importers what they know of Czech fish farms.)

I am certainly very interested.  Please tell me (and Neil, too) more!
