Welcome to TONMO, the premier cephalopod interest community, and birthplace of #WorldOctopusDay and #CephalopodAwarenessDays. Founded in 2000, we are a large community of experts, hobbyists and enthusiasts, some of whom come together when we host our biennial conference. To join in on the fun, sign up. You can also become a Supporter for just $50/year to remove all ads and enjoy other perks. Follow us on Twitter for more cephy goodness.
Perhaps everyone should email them, especially the experienced ceph-keepers here, expressing their disappointment/disgust/outrage at LiveAquaria's decision to make this species commercially available. If enough of us speak up, maybe they'll change their minds.
I am horrified to see that you are selling mimic octopus...after all of the diatribe on your site about helping the animals, and helping to maintain a stable environment, you have the gall to sell one of the rarest and least understood cephs around.
This ranks as a very large black mark against you in my book...and I am sure many others feel the same way.
