If you really want to get E. Scolopes real bad and go on a hliday at teh same time I might have some info for u.
E. scolopes are found on the shallow sandy anks of Hawaii. We collect our specimens from the island of Ohau. Tghere are several sites you can colect it from.
We have notices that they donot do well in small aquarium tanks and go belly up real fast.
We keep them at 34 ppt salinity and at 22 degree celcius. We use marine mix and instant ocean to prepare the sea water.
Its imp to do a water chemistry and check on the ammonia nitrite and nitrate levels ever week. if the animal is small, it survives for about 4 months in captivity. Newly hatched babies have high mortality rates.
SO if u know some one going to hawaii or wanna do it ur self I can hook u up with teh site.
Have fun and happy hunting.
Sorry to bring up an old post, but I've been getting conflicting information...despite the post on this thread about rossia pacifica being made available through octopets, I have gathered from scattered posts that, correct me if I'm wrong, octopets is gettind S.bandensis. Are they getting R.pacifica, S.bandensis, or both?
