I checked the Octo DataBase, and there are others that may be siblings.

However, I think we should limit our siblings group to those octo keepers who want to be active in posting. It would be nice if everyone kept a journal, but it's not necessary. We need to track the lives of our siblings so that we learn more about them. We learned a lot from the last generation. Plus, it's fun to read about them and how they interact!

I've updated the siblings list to reflect Lil Pumpkin passing away.

I've also turned this thread into a sticky note, so it will stay at the top of the postings. I will keep the list current.

How big are all other the sibs?? It would be nice to somehow compare to see if there are any runts, giants, etc. No matter how big Ochi is getting I always wonder is he eating enough, or the right size.

This being my first octo it is hard to know with others info.

BTW - Ochi has about a 2" mantle and 4" arms.

Note from Nancy: Post your answer in the next Thread,
Bimac Keepers Please Report In

Well, congratulations and welcome to Lil Ze!

I need to add several names to this list, so I'll be updating it soon and I'll include Lil Ze.

Thanks,

Nancy

I've updated the list (the first post of this thread) today to include Lil Ze in the second group of Bimac Siblings (there may be more, I'll have to check again).

Also sad news, BOE's The Agent passed away on October 10. I've also added this information.

I've updated our bimac sibling list again (it's the first post of this thread). I've added Odo and recorded the passing of Ochi.

Nancy, I have been gone for a long time, as Crazy Legs (Ollie Jr.) past away, she found a way out of her tank and was found the next morning in the living room.

However Ashley and myself just got back from Octopets where we got 2 siblings. Bonnie and Clyde are 1 month old, and extremly small. I also talked to Jim about his new cuttle species, I regret to inform you all, that they had an accedent there a few days ago, and lost the whole batch... So it will be a while till they can get another batch of eggs to start raising the small species of cuttles.

Nice to hear from you again!

Sorry about Ollie Jr. (Crazy Legs), it's sad when they crawl out.

We've had several others that have escaped and died, too. (A couple of years ago, it was a common belief that biimacs never escaped - by carefully tracking our bimacs, we learned that they do get out of the tank.)

Also, thanks for the report on Octopets and too bad about the accident with the smaller species of cuttlefish. That will set them back a bit. A lot of people have been waiting for smaller cuttlefish.

I'm sure you and Ashley are happy to have little bimacs again. One month is very young - I don't believe they will eat frozen food until about two months. How will you handle two of them - will you put them in the same tank or separate tanks? Nice names, too - Bonne and Clyde!

Nancy
