Looks like the summer will be a better time to buy than right now. Marinebio_guy is planning to have octos for sale, zyan silver's dad is planning to continue the bimac breeding program.

We'll be looking into what's available now for an update.

Danthemarineman reports that he's getting one or two O. mercatoris in every week. Please contact him if you're interested in this dwarf species.

I don't know much but i know how to answer that question.

for i bimac you need a 50 gallon or larger. for a vulgaris i'm not sure but well over 100 gallons. I don't think you need a uv sterilizer, but it would probably be good to prevent infection. chillers are expensive, but important for such creatures. when i first looked at the prices i thought to myself "360 dollars for this?" i don't know if it's best but heres a link to the kind i'm thinking of getting.

I'm still learining too, so don't take my advice too seriously, and if anyone sees anything wrong with my advice please tell me.

for a bimac, there's an equipment list in the ceph care articles, although some of your questions are "could go either way" with respect to that, but these sorts of things are discussed a lot in older posts: forum search is your friend! Relatively few people have been keeping vulgaris around TONMO because they need such huge tanks, but there's some discussion of them as well in old posts...
