I've had a few Bimac's over the last couple of years which have done well. I'm looking for a species that gets a little larger. Anyone have any ideas of the species and where I can purchase it?

In case the GPO is TOO big :smile:, here are some other suggestions.

O. briareus has longer arms than the bimac and may appear slightly larger. A larger octopus that some of our members have kept and liked is O.vulgaris[/I. Both of these would only be available wild caught. And you don't have to worry about cooler water temperatures, like you do for the bimac.
