    I hatched out some baby dwarf octopus from eggs laid by a wild caught female and am going to sell them to local pet shops I don't know what to charge though I am new to the hobby and dont even know if I should ask this question in this forum. Any help would be appreciated.

    Well done keeping them alive!
    I take it they are all happy and feeding well? I would imagine there might be a few people interested in buying one here on the forums, although I dont know if there is a trade/exchange section.
    If they have just hatched it is most likely that you will loose some to various causes(cannibilism ect).
    Just make sure the people who buy them know what they are doing, and send them here if they need help. :grin:

    I live in Missouri, They are eating great on Brine shrimp and so far are ignoring each other because I keep them well fed I guess.

    Please try to find another live food source. Brine shrimp are not nutritious enough for cephalopods. You could try copepods, amphipods or mysid shrimp.
