The U.S. phone companies use 411 for information (directory service), so it's become slang for information in general. (and 911 is emergency, even more so after 9/11)

Hi,

Have a look at the thread called List of Our Octopuses at the top of the Journals and Photos forum. Scroll down through the list of bimacs and you'll come to Other Species. There are a couple of people keeping bluerings.

If memory serves me right, nobody on TONMO.com currently has a blue-ring. This is becuase keeping blue-rings are potentially dangerous and although they a pretty, most that are sold usually are cuaght in the wild - something TONMO.com does not endorse.

In another thread, arrogant s.o.b. actually appeared suprised by the lethal poison of bluerings.

Arrogant, what research did you actually do before purchasing this animal?

Once again, what type of system do you keep it in?

Who sold you a bluering without mentioning that it could kill you?

And...lol...yes...lol...it will probably die in a couple of months...lol

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic, but I suppose it's better safe than sorry, in terms of making sure he knows the danger level. I talked to an LFS guy back in 1986 who was pretty pushy about "if you're thinking about an octo, you should get a blue ring because they're much more colorful"-- I'm not sure he even would have mentioned the "and can kill you" if I hadn't already known...

er, actually, no disrespect to Chrono, but Nancy answered it more accurately, if indirectly-- there are two people on the "list of octopuses" that have blue rings, but they have not been very active posters recently. I believe there are a number of folks who have kept them in the past, as well.

If you use the "member list" page to look up their names, you can "show all posts" to get the details about their bluerings...

Arrogantsob81,

Its not truly a touchy subject, it's a subject that is close to the hearts of the TONMO community and really, people would help you out as best they could.

I will suggest that your login name doesn't really start you off on the right foot. It suggests that you are looking to pick a fight and rile a few people up. It's not going to happen in this case as I am regrettably closing this thread as we have all seen where this goes many time over.

I will also politely suggest that having a blue ring is a big deal and will always attract a lot of attention. People are genuinely interested in these species. Please be prepared to expect a lot of questions directed at you about your blue ring octopus.

thanks
Colin
