Don't expect Octopets to respond to emails. The bimacs are the hobby part of a major aquaculturing business raising mussels for restaurants. He really doesn't have time to answer emails. Best way to get in touch is to call him.

I strongly suspect Aquarium Supply's bimacs are wild-caught. Note on their page that your octopus may arrive missing some arms. They also don't seem too knowledgable about the animals: They refer to them as O. bimaculatus when they probably are, in fact, O. bimaculoides.
