    well, briareus is from the florida not californian area if that helps :)

    vulgaris is a small egg species and virtually impossible to rear the young but briareus is a large egg species and so is bimaculoides which would be easier candidates...

    People are already supplying the pet trade with captive bred octopuses check out octopets.com

    It kinda depends where you're from, many countries have a large range of pricing.
