Hi and welcome!

I think there are 8 or so of us that have babies from Octopets!!! All are doing very well! Good experience too! As to the podfarm, not sure but abalone is a type of clam I believe.

If I'm noy Wrong the pod farm is a system that helps you breed amphipods. The abalone is a kind of shellfish (which I like to eat :smile: ), its shell colours depend on the food it eats, if you feed it different foods, layers of colours will be formed.

I have ordered from thee and would do it again!!

Jim will answer any questions you have if you email him.

Joel is right the pod farm is for amphis and is really benefically for newly hatched octos.

When you octo is big enough it would prolly eat the abalone.

octopets #1

My octopus came the next day after I had ordered it. I ordered the "kit" so that I had clams to feed it. It's been 3 months now and he's doing great!

I just ordered the pod farm. It comes with a HUGE clump of macro and about 100 pods (guessing, but it's alot!). These look like a mix between a shrimp and a pill bug. Green, and the biggest is about 3/4 of an inch long.

I'd definatly recommend them to anyone as I've had tons of positive contact with them, and most importantly, my octo is alive!

Cheers!

I've been on their site before, but can't figure out what shipping costs. :?
Is it already included on the prices?
