Hola!

As has been mentioned earlier, you really can't go wrong with fishsupply.com. I manage the source page for Dr. Wood's ceph page and the reason fishsupply is at the top of the list is their support for the ceph community. I had several phone conversations with the owner as well as email repartee and was left with an overwhelming sense of confidence.

Jack, the owner of fishsupply, really listened to Chris Shaw (who may or may not still read this forum) and has made an effort to not only put good hardy cephalopods in people's tanks, he's even fleshed out the writeup so uninitiated aquarists won't be scared away. He also usually HAS the animals in stock, which is not necessarily the case with the other sources on the ceph page.

I'm very happy to see the Jack's service ethic has extended to other members of the community, and his commitment to delivering healthy animals has impressed others. Rock on!

-Cheers, Jimbo

the only thing that isnt so great about fishsupply.com is that they only get bimacs a few times a year. their octos come unannounced, so you've gotta keep good contact with them if you wanna insure getting one. and the dude i talked to there said they're probably gonna stop shipping live octos. so theyre switchin to pick ups only.

Fishsupply was a large supplier of bimacs five years ago, but then they were sold and all new people came in. They were not native English speakers and could understand so little that I had confidence in ordering from them. Also, I later heard that they stopped shipping altogether and only sell locally.

Perhaps that's what you're referring to, Keith.
