How many of you plan to buy a bimac this year?

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out what happened to Octopets and whether someone will still be breeding bimacs to sell to the public.

I realized I needed some information from you - how many of you are planning a bimac purchase this year - or would be, if they were available?

If you read the Octopets thread (Journals and Photos), you'll see what I found out today. I hope to really know what's happening by the end of the week.

Nancy,

I expect to purchase two this year.

My tank will be fully matured by the end of the month, so I expect to buy one as soon as available. If the little guy lives for 8-10 months, then I could conceivably have another one by year's end.

When I start talking about my bimac setup, eyes start lighting up at my lfs. I certainly can't speak for them, but I suspect not long after I get one, one or two of them might be ordering for themselves and/or a display for the store.

Nancy, thank you for doing this snooping. You're our octo-Woodward & cuttle-Bernstein. I hope you also ask on ReefCentral in the ceph forum. If the market is not adequate for the Aquafarm to rationalize a captive-bred program, I should hope it is enough to convince someone to catch wild-caught or tank-raised bimacs.
