Hi, I was just wondering if there is any place where I can purchase a CB octopus? I see WC octopuses at my local aquarium store all of the time, but I don't really want to take them out of the wild. I purchased a WC octo before. I soon discovered that the collectors must have pulled her out of her den, as she had an egg wrapped up in her arms. She attached it to the bag (which she made her new den) and it hatched about a month later. I felt really bad when the baby died, because if it had hatched out in the ocean it would not have been sucked up by my filter. Also, if I buy a WC species, I will have no idea how old it is. I might only have it for another month or two.
