well, briareus is from the florida not californian area if that helps :smile:

vulgaris is a small egg species and virtually impossible to rear the young but briareus is a large egg species and so is bimaculoides which would be easier candidates...

People are already supplying the pet trade with captive bred octopuses check out octopets.com
