Excellent. I hope you have better luck than the rest of us did. The hummelincki's are very entertaining octos.

Yes, it seems like the recent hummelinckis are doing well, so I'm hoping that there was a one-time "bad batch," but that we can recommend this species and saltwaterfish.com in general. The owner does get credit for stopping by and thanking us for letting him know about the issue, although we never heard back if he'd discovered anything (but really, if it was a problem at the supplier, he may have had no way of finding out the root cause.)
