Hi Octomo --

Your best bet would be either to post this on one of the three Cephalopod Care forums, or to write Dr. Steve O'Shea directly via TONMO's private message system. Steve-O' is the quintessential ceph expert -- you may have seen him on the Discovery Channel special CHASING GIANTS which dealt with his search for an Architeuthis larva. He's also a delightful, helpful person who I'm sure could give you the best advice on GPO care.

If you have not used the TONMO private message system before, our founder and facilitator Tony Morelli can advise you on how to do so.

Best of luck,
