hi david

very interesting thing you have done :smile:

sorry i have lots of questions...

What species of BRO is it? There are a couple from Aussie seas

How many batches did it take to get 170?

What size did you release them at and what foods did you give them?

Where did the shots go?

again sorry for all the questions but myself and a lot of other members will be thrilled to learn more.

cheers
Colin

Hi David,

Let me say welcome to TONMO.com again! We would very much like to see your photos and also hear more about the blue ringed octos.

Yes, I agree with Colin - please give us many more details about what you've been doing. It sounds so interesting.

And please fill us in on behavior and personality of your octopuses, too!

Nancy
