If i understand correctly, mercs are warm water octos. How long do they live
I believe around 6 months- 1year. So short
i'd probably be better off with a bimac then. still not a long lifespan, but the best i can afford.
Problem is Bob, there are very few octis that have a life span much longer than 6 months - 2 years. The exceptions are ones that generally you can't keep at home, such as GPO's (way too big), or polar species (you'd need a MEGAchiller ).
i'm content with 1 to 1.5 years
