    Im looking for a new Octopus after the death of my last one.

    I know it's a long shot, but I thought I couldn't hurt to see if anyone in Eastern/central (maybe even Western) Florida has any hatchlings they are willing to sell.

    With my last one, not knowing the animal's age is a little frustrating for me. I'm not picky on the species, I just would love to have an idea how old the octopus is that I'm getting. I'll probably end up special ordering one from my LFS, but it can't hurt to ask, right? :smile2:

    You can try calling some of your local fish stores to see if they have a locall caught animals. You won't know the age but you can at least see it and the size before purchasing. Unfortunately, right now is not likely the time you will see much from local divers as most FL animals are sourced from the keys.
