hi, is it even possible to own a gpo? I see them mostly at research centers and aquarium places like sea world. I want to plan a huge tank (like 600 gallons) for one someday, but I never see them available anywhere? Thanks.

There is no legal reason for them not to be available and there are is a small collector in Washington that will occasionally have one available but they are not easily sourced and quite costly both to acquire and ship.

Does the collector have a company name? I have a cold water tank, wondering if he gets other specimens besides Octopus.
