How long will you keep them and will you give us more photos since we rarely get to see this species - Please?

Hopefully, I'll keep them until they die, which will hopefully be a while :smile: We are doing some experiments on diet/growth and if we get them to spawn try to do some larval rearing. The largest one is about 9 lbs and has an arm-span of about 4 feet. I'd like to try to do long term experiments focusing on larval rearing and artificial diets.

Yes, I haven't been around lately because I've been building a marine mammal stranding facility and tuna aquaculture tank. Which is not as exciting as cephs :smile:

Welcome back to the fun stuff! The marine mammal stranding facility should have been interesting though.

It appears there was no problems with fighting in the small space of the cooler on the way back to the facility. Did you find these two close together? Will you house them separately?
