    He got it from one of his friends I think that had one at an aquarium shop. Vulgaris species aren't that common to get despite it being the most common octopus around the world.

    You'd need a 100+ gallon tank for Vulgaris cuz they can grow large w/ 3 ft. long tentacles.

    Does he have any more? I have ordered from Tampa Bay Saltwater, but Richard hasn't seemed to find one yet.
