Yes I have been preparing for quite some time now. And I am about to get my liscence. The squid are kinda hard to keep I think... But my dad kept some alive in a bucket for several days without filtration or anything. He just fed them crabs that he found attached to bouys. I think that they would probally just as difficult to keep if not less as an octo. If u have the right stuff. And if u had all the stuff that u needed I think that hey would make fun pets. Steve O'shea says that u need a special set up for them and Im sure hes right. But you could probally keep one for about a year or so when they are still small then let it go.

Jean's right. I don't think I could take care of a tank right now, so I don't have a tank at home.

Octomush, did you have a recent problem with your tank? Did you figure out what happened?

Actually i would pay 20 to 30 but i can catch my own too :heee: . Just curious, how do you catch them anyway. They seem t die so fast out of water.

My dad catches them when they splash up on the deck of his boat or jump up. Or with a dip net. Or when they chew on the bait. And by the way what kind do u catch?
