Hi @fiskerkarma25 - thanks for joining. I am working on a potential source for offering cephalopods to responsible owners, through TONMO. I hope to be able to share some info in about a week. In the meantime, hopefully others will chime in with any immediate availability -- otherwise, please let us know if you are able to get one!

@fiskerkarma25 Love your handle! My Model 3 Tesla is just now a year old but I drooled at Drive Electric day when I saw my first Karma!

@Patwarring1374

KP Aquatics has a waiting list option that is sometimes helpful (Hit or miss - timing is all). Live Aquaria also sometimes have animals from the Philippines (seeing less of them since they were acquired by PetCo). Occasionally you can find a diver caught FL animal on Ebay (rare) or at local Fish shops.

@fiskerkarma25, mine is only the rear wheel drive long range (ie NOT performance and only 1 motor) 5 sec 0-60 so only a tiny bit faster :gigas:, a whole lot more reliable and considerably less expensive but not as good looking!
