Ok guys... here it is... I need EVERYONES help.... In Australia it is against quarantine regulations to import live molluscs which means that anyone who wants an octo (and since people have seen my two, that seems to be everyone!!) has to wait for them to be caught off the reef or come in by chance on live rock (which is generally what happens)... this is not only inconvenient but is really bad for the stocks on the reef... so.. what rick and I are proposing to do is start something similar to Octopets (they're in California I think) over here in Australia, that way we can cater to the masses and educate them properly but not take from the environment. the only trouble is dont know where to begin... I have emailed Octopets for thier help but am not sure that they would want to share trade secrets being that they too are trying to run a business ( even though not covering our market), so if anyone can point me in the right direction or has any ideas they will be eagerly recieved!! The first thing I think I will have to do is apply for an exception or something to that effect to allow the eggs or babies into the country... but how do you get them to breed??? Hmm... seems I have much reaserch - including how to spell that -! so come on... bombard me with your ideas!!!!
