You could try suppliers in south east asia though chances are they won't know the species, you could try getting a bandensis too but cuttles don't seem to be in season. Hawaii would be the better choice.

Yep, for having the pleasure of working on O. cyanea last year in Indonesia i can confirm that they grow really big :wink:. In my study of the local octo fishery, i (only) came across (by that i mean the octo was brought to me for statolith removal by a fisherman prior to being sold to a middleman) a 3.2kg octo. I've had access to the local middlemen books and it seems the record stands at about 6kg :shock: ... but it was caught two weeks before i arrived on site :evil: dang!
