That depends on the species you're aiming at.

Bimacs for example are usually sold between 20$ and 30$. Take note that in almost any case, this doesn't include handling/shipping fees and so on.

A good recource for different species, their prices and places to order them can be found here:

Hi and welcome to TONMO.com! :welcome:

The cost of the octopus is the least expensive part of setting up an octo tank. The cost of the aquarium and the cost of food will be more.

I was looking at the ocotpets web site, and for $40 you get an octopus and some baby clams to start out with, then add shipping onto that.

But, you have to have your tank set up and cycled, it would help if you had some amphipods living there too for a baby octo, so that's at least three months work.
