Honestly. I'm not entirely sure. I would prefer larger but not if that means older necessarily.

Prefer younger (if age is at all estimated)

It would be going in a large tank so if they are presumed all around the same age but one Octo seems to be on the larger side of the spectrum, then that would better suite the tank for sure.

I'll pay and get a post going once the kids are asleep. I would be very grateful and I would 100% do a weekly journal if afforded the opportunity to keep the holy grail of octopus (imo)

Hey Folks, The availability of bimacs is very exciting. We don’t have a tank available until our last cuttlefish shuffles off her mortal coil, but hopefully whomever is sourcing these octopuses will be able to get more of them. Bimacs, especially the -loides are fat and away the best octopus pets. They are quite smart, tame very well, and don’t try as hard as other species to escape their tanks. When I was running my lab many years ago, I had several of them in tanks without any lids at all. (But please do still take precautions)

Great! Yes, per top post, one still available, after two successfully shipped. Post your tank specs (or point me to an existing Tank Talk thread if one exists) and place your order; I'll take it up privately with you from here.

Too bad I missed this thread! I was looking so hard for a bimac here for quite some time, without success. So ... my tank is the same as in my "Omikron" thread ([Octopus]: - This is Omikron - Abdopus aculeatus). And ... I live in Austria, which is not really the 51st state of American. So would you be willing to consider shipping them to Europe? @Nancy stated, IIRC, that bimacs are a hardy species and travel well, so she would not have objected when I came to here for that subject. What do you think?

Hi Benjie,
I think Tony will have to answer this one.
This species is occasionally shipped to Europe, but I don ‘t know any of the details, including customs.
