Offianalis source??

Feb 18, 2005
The loss of octopets was a huge blow to the bimac communitty, but something thats been on my mind are the officianalis that they sold. Ive had the pleasure of keeping one before and i was really attached to it. I love bandensis, but officianlis seemed to have much more complex behaviours and were very entertaining. id love to get one again in the future when I have a larger tank, but Im unsure of thier availability.

Does anyone know where these 'common' Cuttles can be purchased nowadays?

I believe they're still being raised for scientific purposes, but not available to the general public.

Has anyone else come across S. officinalis for sale?
