the octopus is the cheapest part of the whole setup. If you cant afford the octopus, how are you paying for the tank, filtration, FOOD, etc?????

i dont think it will hatch if you get only one. im not sure on the fertility rate on those things im pretty sure its not 100% so its a gamble that you'll get a baby octo in the first place. but if you want you could email Jim at octopets and he'll give you a price for one. or at least thats what he did for cuttlefish eggs for me.
