Yep, it was a long time coming....

Just be aware that it is Sepia officinalis that is being sold and that they are going to get BIG and need a cooler for most places :smile:

well good luck with that :?

i like to try the old "well hey ther really really ridiculouslygood lookin'" and then something like...

"i've been trying to think of the best way to add thousands in value to the house....and then it came to me...a CEPHALOPOD ROOM. In the entrance we could have the chambered nautilus followed by rows of black squid cylinders along the walls and a centrepiece containing a colony of cuttles...oh yeah and octos in the back corner" lol

well it might work??? :lol:

good luck
