none of them yet (soon a bimac) but i have got a spider that lives on me kitchen window ledge called Archie who i feed moths an catapillars almost every day to. im tryin to teach him to recognise me by tappin by his den when i come to see him. which seems to be workin as he used to be a nervous wreck an now he comes an runs right across the ledge to catch the food i bring him!!! seriously!!! lol

he's called Archie cause (Colin will appreciate this!!!!) i found him there about a year an half ago an forgot about him until not long ago, when i rediscovered him on the day Scotland played Holland an won one-nil.........had to be called Archie after Archie Gemill (spellin?) from the last one-niler between Scot-Holl

for those who dont understand watch the film trainspottin!!! you will then :lol: :lol: :lol:

I did keep a bimac, Ollie, but she died about 6 weeks ago. So I'm between octopuses, and intend to get another bimac, but not in the near future.

Right now I have a small invertebrate tank with a very friendly cleaner shrimp (skunk shrimp) who comes whenever he sees either of us. Also hermit crabs, snails, big featherduster, strange mushroom anemone, etc.
