Did you notice the statement about how difficult briareus are to find in that area because of the hurricanes?

are you bidding on it? it has an outragous 45 dollar shipping fee!!!! theres no way it cost that much to ship it!

No, im still looking

But that is a good looking Octi! For a hard to find species currently I think that it is an excellent buy! If I were you I would snatch it up!
