Congratulations and can't wait to see the pics!

I had a great plan..... Took today off to finish getting ready to bring home the "Baby Carribean Octo". Well...... :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x
I walk in the shop, take some shots of the baby, ask the kid to bag it for me and the wife of the owner says, the person still wants it and its my dentist so you can't have that one........ :x :x :x

I'm wishing evil :evil: things on them as I type.......

I just left.... Had I stayed I wouldn't have been responsible for my anything that came out of my mouth.......

Anyway, they don't even have a "Carribean" Octo. Owner was sure it was not Pacific.....Baby Bimac......Had the 2 classic spots, but they blended.......

I had decided to house it in a pethome for a while in my 29 with Mr. Jawfish. And here's it's new empty home and pictures of it wanting to come home with me......

Ink looks absolutely massive now after messing with that baby :biggrin2: .....

The one shot has my finger so you can see how tiny it was....

That's terrible - this LFS isn't treating you very well. I suppose you can only hope that the dentist will change his mind. Sorry it isn't working out, it's a very charming little octi.

Absolutely!!! I was thrilled to see it was another Bimac!!! And yes they do need a good scrubbing but I must say everything is always very healthy from there.

My kids were so disapointed, I ended up calling Jack at Fish Supply and the Fedex truck is arriving before noon today with a baby the same size!!!
My daughtor has her heart set on naming it.......ya ready for this....probably the first octo in the history of octo keeping with this name...."Lil Pumpkin"...... :shock: She's won't change her mind....I tried!!!!

Looks like I am going to be investing in another bigger tank!!! Figured, its so tiny it will do fine for a while in the 29 gal!

I must be nuts!!!! Will keep ya posted!!!

Hi Carol,

Lil" Pumpkin seems to be a Halloween octopus! Very nice that you're getting a little bimac after all. Looking forward to the first pics!
