Hello Everyone - i wanted to let u all know that i have a Blue Ring availiable. He guy was a hitchhiker in my live rock. I didn't know he was in there untiL my hermits and snails were being eaten. Captured the guy a week ago and placed him inside a container inside my reef. He's availiable to anyone what wants to buy or trade for him. Asking for 100US or trades in sps frags. Needless to say this is a deadly animal. This species of ceph has been known to KILL people who have carelessly handled them. Those who are experienced enough or know about these animals should be the only one considering this animal. You will be questioned by me so be ready. The guy is beautifuL tho, and he probably won't last long. I'm in So CaLi, prefer local trade but willing to ship. Good Luck!!

life span?

how long do they usually live?
I read that they live a max of two years, but from what everyone says, it seems otherwise. BTW, Glasgow is one of the favorite cities I have ever visited...3 times.
thanks

Every one I've seen shipped in is usually in a nice black bag of ink...dead.
Pity.

Blue rings live up to 6 months but perhaps longer if kept in cooler conditions. What people read saying they live to 2 years refers to the normal or larger sized octos again if the temperature is a little cooler.

My LFS got a blue ring shipped to them accidentaly, they've been trying to get rid of it for a while; I can try to get you that one if you want but I doubt it will survive the trip from Minnesota to the U.K. if that's where you're located.

:welcome: by the way!

Nevermind, my LFS killed it, they flushed it down the toilet while it was still alive (that's what I've been told) because they didn't want it to hurt anyone while they were on vacation.
:x
