Hi.... I have been looking to catch a good octo for my tank and I thought maybe a dwarf would be cool. Are there any dwarfs in hawaii?

O I think I know what ur talkin about! Those are awesome! I read in a book that they are so small they sometimes live in old matis shrimp burrows! Cool.... And I think I know where on my island I might catch one. :biggrin2:

They're not actual octos, they're seploids and are more closely related to cuttles. They're nocturnal and they spend their day buried in the sand so find one is pretty tough.

You could try mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni or even a vampyroteuthis :vampyro: :heee: Seriously, I don't think there are dwarfs there (according to ceph base).
