And what is the size difference in a O. Vulgaris and a O. Bimac?
It will be housed in a 180 gallon set up.
I was recently referred to your site as a possible source for obtaining a hand captured octopus. I have kept octos for over 4 years, raised three generations of mercatoris and been successful keeping
three different medium sized species through senescence (briareus, hummelincki, macropus). I keep
four designated octopus tanks (one is dwarf only) and am not looking for an immediate purchase but for sources that know no poisonous chemicals (quinaldine or vodka are acceptable) for their capture.
Can you tell me where (which body of water) the common octopus is collected and if they have
typically been diurnal or nocturnal (the photo is not clear enough to make an ID)? Are the Bali
Octos diurnal and are they monitored for chemical use like the US divers? If the common octos are from Haiti, the same monitoring question applies and is the animal I would most interested in requesting. After placing an order, what is the average wait before an animal is available? Do you have an arrive alive guarantee and if so what does it cover?
Sorry I didn't get back sooner. Problem with web-site's email. The common we get usually comes from the atlantic or carribean. the dwarfs comes from the gulf. Sorry there is N.G. on octopus because the problem with them is they could ink in the bag they ship in. Most of the time they do live. When they are available we overnight them.
