    I've been looking for an octopus for a while and an wondering if anyone can help with a good place to get an octopus in B.C. Canada. :banghead: The store I usually deal with brought one in for me but it was in pretty rough shape and didn't make it:angelpus: they have gotten one other one in and it was D.O.A. they just seem to be hit and miss when your not really looking for something the have lots but when you are their is nothing to be found(I'm sure you know what I mean). If someone could point me in the direction of a better supplier I would defiantly appreciate it:cool:

    A month or two ago someone in Canada was posting that he could get octopuses for people. Hope he replies.

    Thanks Aqua tech is on the other side of the country but at least the right side of the border for me. I went to their web site but it doesn't look ready to go yet, I may be wrong though.

    Aqua Tech,

    Do you ever post your octos online on your website, or will you in the future?

    :welcome: to TONMO, michika. You may want to keep an eye on the "Octopus Availability" thread as well as this one for that sort of info.

    if you can find a nearby breeder, maybe not on tonmo, that could be easier for you; you might want to look on the cephalopod page

    Just FYI this thread is over two years old, and Aqua tech has not been active in about a year. You might try calling them. PH:(519)826-1718

    I'm really not sure. I live in Florida. But hopefully a fellow Canadian can chime in and help out.
