Hi Drew, and welcome to TONMO.com :welcome:

I have seen O. joubini offered for sale.

But are you sure you want a pygmy? They tend to live only 6 months and are usually not very friendly.

Also, one of our Tonmo members bought what was supposed to be a pygmy, and it grew into quite a large octopus, so you have to be careful.

Carol's Rummler, who laid eggs and is now deceased, is the most recent one I know of.
