if anyone has a second go to ebay and check out what the seller has described as a zebra banded octopus. im not sure what to think of this, so i choose not to think anymore.

someone who has 'been in the aquarium industry for over 15 years importing products... never seen or heard of anything quite like this animal' ... and is selling it on Ebay (!!) said:
I will send you the tank and all materials in it (coral, etc.) for an additional $250

Alternately :mad: and cringing...

Same old story .... Just praying the auction won't get any bids at all and that the seller can forget about his $500 :evil:

Wowza! From his description it doesn't sound like he's been in the biz for that long....and this is coming from someone who's only been in it for six years.

Cheers!
