Hmmm....2 months maybe quarter sized curled up??? Or maybe more like dime sized??? Lil P came from there and was sooo tiny on delivery, I kept him in a pet home inside the tank for a few weeks with one of those stick on bubble filters to drawn the tanks water in.

Good luck with your new baby! Please keep us posted on arrival and acclimation!!!

Is your little bimac being shipped right now? Otherwise, you might let the people at Octopets know that you're having a cold spell. It will probably be OK.

Warm him up slowly with the drip acclimation described elsewhere.
