Im an LFS owner and I havent been able to get my hands on anything other than blue rings (no thanks....).

Marineboy if you can get me 1-3 Id take em in a minute. Especially if they are smaller ones. Ive got one tank at home for one, and I would rig up more at my store for the others.

If anyone knows were to get one, even if its a wholesale vendor let me know. Preferable bimacs, but others would be fine (other than bluering).

cheers

Hi all,

We've heard from Richard at TBS (Tampa Bay Saltwater) - he has octos for sale:

2 vulgaris (one large and one small) - nice octos, but you'll need a big tank!
2 dwarf octos (joubini)

Richard also mentions that he can get vulgaris all year long, but joubini is only collected in the spring and is coming to the end of its season.

You can contact him at [email protected] or send a PM to liverock.

And a request: please post only sites you have verified - please contact them to see if they really do have octos available.

Thanks

Nancy

Fish Supply is still getting some a few octos in, species unknown. They're in Huntington Beach, CA, if any of you are in the neighborhood.

I have access to tons of bimac's where I live. I am shipping one to Dan hopefully in the next couple days. I do not run a buisness although my dad wants me to but I can do side deals with people if I feel they're trusted. I posted some pics of bimacs earlier and If your interested I can sell em cheap to you. Possibly free as long as you pay shipping. I don't know if thats considered worthy for this thread and I won't take it personaly nancy if you delete this.
that actually sounds really cool, let me know if you're still up for doing that.

We picked up our O. Mercatoris from The Octopus Garden in Berkeley (510) 849-4450 where they say that they get octopus in quite frequently. Last week, he said he got 2 in on Tuesday and 2 in on Thursday. But apparently there's a research prof. at Berkeley who snatches them up for research. He had bought the other 3 octopi last week.

Available Bimac?

Marineboy, I have had my tank ready for almost three months but cant find a Bimac anywhere. If you have one that I could purchase please let me know.
