    Hmmm....2 months maybe quarter sized curled up??? Or maybe more like dime sized??? Lil P came from there and was sooo tiny on delivery, I kept him in a pet home inside the tank for a few weeks with one of those stick on bubble filters to drawn the tanks water in.

    Good luck with your new baby! Please keep us posted on arrival and acclimation!!!

    ok

    ok i will , THough im already a little dissapointed
    becasue I was wanting it to be bigger than that

    he told me he would pick the biggest one he had out of the 2 month olds for me


    im also worried about it arriving not frozen cause its 29 degrees here right now at night and day time its about 35

    Is your little bimac being shipped right now? Otherwise, you might let the people at Octopets know that you're having a cold spell. It will probably be OK.

    Warm him up slowly with the drip acclimation described elsewhere.

    Well, that's a heat pack, so your little guy should be fine.
