Frozen food


Dec 12, 2006
After thinking about it for a while, I think I've decided that live food is too expensive, so I think I'm gonna do frozen food when/if I get an octo. I'm still saving money for a tank, and it's looking like it's gonna be a while before I get an octo tank. But anyway, I need to know if there are any websites where I can buy frozen food for octos. BTW, I'm planning on supplementing the diet with live food (either shrimp or crabs, whichever seems to be its favorite) once/twice a week.
If you want to try frozen.....you don't need a website. I just go to my local grocery stores seafood deli. I get around 5 large frozen shrimp for around 60 cents. My octopus eats about half a shrimp a day. So 60 cents for around 2 weeks food is pretty inexpensive I'd say.
I don't have to worry about if it's been treatd with unsafe things? Wait...it would be food quality... Thanks! You just saved me a lot of trouble. BTW, I was planning on feeding a little live food, just not as the basic diet, more as a supplement.
No. it's not your fault. I suck at abreviations. I always go through like 1000 things it could mean, then worry about which one it is.
