Hi Paul, welcome to TONMO!

If you go collecting like this with a tangible connection to the school, I'm sure you want to be completely legit. I can see the headline now:

"California man indicted--shipped native species across country, school profited"


:shock: :lol:

I'd like to avoid that!

Today while tidepooling with the girlfriend, I ran across another one.

About a two inch head...

That's awesome Paul. I held a 1-inch baby over the weekend (Saturday) at Bird Rock. He was SOOO cute. It took every fiber of my being not to bring him home and setup a new tank. He was literally half the size of your pinky finger. I gave him a nearby hermit crab and he pounced on it. I love how they look just like miniature adults, even as babies...

thats funny, i just started working at a lfs, and we have bluerings, "brown". and "bali" octo's on our list

this isnt exactly helpful unless you know the source. There are thousands of vendors. What list were you viewing?




Paul like I said earlier in this post, I own an LFS. Id happily trade some product to get you going for a small octo.

Feel free to PM me if your interested.
