We hope that some captive bred bimacs will be available in a few months.

I'll be checking into this and will post about it soon. Or, perhaps our breeders will post directly.

Right now I have some eggs. I usually only raise about 5 hatchlings as thats is all I handle at any one time.
Hello Marinebio guy, by the sounds of it those might be due around the same time I would be looking for one. If you could let me know an eta on them I would know better-I dont know at what age you let them go and how long that is from now. I am looking in the 1-2 month from now range for my tank to be well cycled and ready. Thanks!!

A two-week old octopus is very small. Do you know what you would feed it?

You could feed it live mysid shrimp, small ghost shrimp, or hand feed it frozen krill,plankton,mysid. They can eat something the same size they are and they would be about the size of a quarter at 2 weeks old
