    I now have a lot of captive raised bimac's I am working out how to sell them in a reliable way. I am in the L.A. area so it could possible to have people pick them up if they are in the area other than that I might try ebay but I am looking at other options to. A estimated price is $50.

    Did you raise them yourself? Bimaculoides or Bimaculatus? How big?

    The mother was wild caught but the eggs where laid in captivity. They just hatched 2 days ago so they are about 1 inch across.

    You might ask Thales - he made some sort of arrangement with a California LFS to ship his baby cuttles.

    I guess it would be best for you to find an LA LFS, or even one in San Diego.

    Also, please post about your baby bimacs under Octopus Availablity at the top of this forum - it would be good if people knew they would be available.
