    Hello!

    No, but I GAVE my infant son an octopus mobile for his carrier. Its an octopus, with a fish, seastar, and crab hanging from the arms. I should have him classifying them by phyla probably in about a year or so... :P

    Sushi and Sake,

    John

    Oh, and Happy Holidays!

    Octo-gift

    I received a purple and blue glass octopus ormanent - although it should be a setapod as he had one broken leg. My friend couldn't find a whole one :o

    I truly lucked out. I have a great relationship with the local pet store, and I am their resident vet. I usually stop in 2-3 times a week to see if any of their animals need any care.

    Anyway... they all knew I have been planning on getting an octopus for a while and have been doing my research. They bought me a tank, cabinet, and canopy, and convinced their Hagen rep to donate most of the other supplies needed.

    I had already purchased a 125 gallon wet/dry with a refugium and a Prism Pro Skimmer, so I should have my octo tank set up and running within 2 weeks. (With the addition of a Fluval 404 canister filter --- can't really have too much filtration, right?)

    I couldn't be more pleased or touched.

    Sincerely thankful,
    David
