Nancy said:I had left a message at the Aquafarm and someone returned my call and gave me a new phone number for Jim at Octopets, but it turned out to be the same one I have.
Will try again on Monday.
If it seems appropriate in the conversation (and assuming the worst) you might ask if they would be receptive to some of us contacting them about eggs. Since there is presumably a population of bimacs in their lagoon, maybe someone there would be willing to grab a festoon next time they're in the water and send them out, or at least have a lead on someone who might.
edit: PS Tony, I like the new buttons!
