Hi, I am new on this site. I am raising bimacs as my senior project. At present i have about 119 one month old babies. I am able to move some out but would like to try and keep 20-30 for my project. I can ship them fed ex overnight, i reside in southern coastal oregon. I don't know how many I am going to be able to raise to adulthood, my parents 20 years ago were successful in only raising 4 or 5 to adulthood but that was under different circumstances. My set up is much improved over their old one. I have read everything on the net but welcome any tidbits one can throw my way. My dad is a serious aquarist with his newest (three year old) project being a 1,000 gallon reef tank. He has been raising octopuses on and off for 25 years.
