I don't know - I'd think it would be OK, but why don't you email Octopets. They raise abalone as well as octos.

cheers Nancy I dropped them a line

poss have opportunity of getting one but its a whoppa...about 7 inches long maybe more an if it did get attacked it'd be a big fallout in the tank i reckon or i wonder if it would defend itself somehow

I like abalones, they're tasty and some octos love them, since I found some abalone shells outside a octo den last time I went scuba diving...


We chinese we'll just about to anything to get our hands on large abalones!

Scouse - can I ask where you're sourcing them mate?

Hello mate, well you'll never guess... its a mutual friend of ours, Elliot, if another mate hasnt got his big toe in the door first. But he ordered his specially many moons ago so thats prob what you have to do. its a whoppa so an octo wouldnt get it for a long time i dont reckon.

Im tryin to have a major diverse clean up crew reckon im gunna need it!

Have you flogged your cuttles yet?? I havnt had time to read the posts

Hey scouse! Take it you are on UR too?

I remember elliots Abalones. I'm know UDA can get them in from time to time, but the clean up crew seen in the UK is appauling at the moment. Nothing coming in apart form your bog standard red legged hermits and astrea snails.

Gah, flogging cuttles?

:lol: Flogging is a slang word for selling!! And yes, all my Bandensis have gone now, apart from a few extra that I'll be growing on as long as I can before attempting to catch from the main system. They will then go at a later date.
