Don't put me in a pidgeon hole! I'd be willing to bet that a lot of
us "grow" animals too. I have iguanas, ducks, goats, horses, and
hedgehogs, just to name a few. Animals are fun too. Besides, when
they die, you can feed them to your plants. A good sized Bassett
hound can keep a _d. pulchella_ happy for years!

And, yes, way back in my marine aquarium phase, I had live sponges.
I even had baby octopi in the ninth grade.
