Welcome to the new Tomh Cephs forum!

We are re-starting the ceph availability program, and we've created a new forum to support requests. Please review the following before requesting a ceph.

Eligibility [IMPORTANT]:
  • In order to qualify for ordering a ceph, you must start a thread in our TANK TALK forum, and include a photo of your ceph-ready tank, along with specifications (water temp, ph, etc.). Orders placed without an associated thread will be canceled and refunded.
  • Step 2, come back to this forum (Tomh Cephs) and post a new thread expressing your interest, along with a link to your tank specification thread mentioned above.
  • Shipments are currently limited to the United States.
  • Tomh accepts Paypal (other forms of payment TBD).
Once you receive your octo, we strongly encourage you to share tank specifications, pictures, stories and details of their ceph-keeping experience by starting a journal. This is important for the success of the program and the well-being of the cephalopods. Your participation will be taken into account when assessing approval of any future purchases. We take care to ensure positive identification of species made available through this program and the well-being of these cephs (and advancement in our collective learnings) is critical to its success.

Program Notes:
  • Please allow 2-3 business days for order processing.
  • Orders will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis. If you somehow place an order after we've run out of stock, your order will be canceled and refunded.
  • All sales are otherwise final. Transport is best effort - we cannot guarantee survival on shipment. We will refund half of costs assuming well-documented description of the problem via email to [email protected].
  • We remind you to review our cephalopod care ethics and guidelines.
  • We will offer complete transparency about this program here in this forum (failures, successes, etc.).
