Hello all,

I am keeping track of the bimac siblings. All who are not siblings can be cousins! I believe that all are tank raised bimacs. I have two groups - 2004 and 2004/5. The most recent group is listed first.

This are the lists I have so far (updated February 4, 2005, creating a 2005 Bimac Siblings list and adding Barnstorm's Ziggy).

2005 Bimac Siblings

Ziggy
Dotti

2004/2005 Bimac Siblings (Second Group)

Walter
Lil Ze
Odo
Bonnie and Clyde
Dr. Octavius
Oozer


Octorok (Aug 19 2004 - January 22 2005) 5 months
Crazy Legs (Ollie Jr.) (deceased)


2004 Bimac Siblings (First Group)

date of arrival / date of death

Lil Pumpkin (10/03/2003 - 03/14/2004) 5 1/2 mo
Truffles (02/13/2004 - 03/26/2004) 2 1/2 mo
Ashi (01/30/2004 - 05/26/2004) 4 mo
Inklet (02/21/2004 - 09/05/2004) 6 1/2 mo
The Agent (02/02/2004 - 10/10/2004) 8 1/4 mo
Ocho (02/13/2004 - 11/09/2004 9 mo


I will be editing and revising this list - I expect it to grow as we find others.
We had a total of eight siblings in 2003, although we just assumed that they were siblings.

Nancy,

Thanks for keeping track. I have not heard of a few of these so its nice to see the family tree. 8)

If this generation is an offspring of a previous breeding stock. I wonder, just wonder, who is an aunt or uncle????? :wink:

If we have Ocho and Lil P confirmed, we'll have nine! Shoot for ten next year? Great job compiling the names Nancy.

Guess what??? Looks like Lil P maybe related also!!!

Here's Jim's reply: Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner, I was in Hawaii for the Marine Ornamentals Conference. I checked my records and I was selling cultured Octopus to fishsupply in October. There is a good chance that they are siblings because I only had two batches of octopus at that time, but I'm not sure which one the fishsupply ones came from.
thanks
Jim

So, odds are Lil P and Inklet are related and possably even siblings!!!

So I think I should put both Inklet and Lil P in the list of siblings!
I'll make that change today.
