    I went on OctoPets website and see a baby bimac is only $25.00, including shipping??????? Is this possable???? I ordered one. So, I will be a 2 octo household shortly!!!!! Figured even if that was a mistake, shipping would be 30 or so.

    Just curious what were all your babies fees?

    I am excited!!! Just have to decide who gets the bigger tank!!!! I'm thinking of moving Lil P but, he seems happy where he is.

    Carol,

    Congrats!! :D

    I got Ochi from octopets, and everything went smoothly. I would recommend Jim to anyone based of my experience with them. Ochi was 25 plus shipping. When is your octo comming!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8)

    Good luck and congrats again!!! :D

    How exciting - nother sibling arriving today. Hope all goes well.

    It's hard for me to watch all these baby bimacs arriving and not have one myself!

    Looking forward to some pics of the little guy, and finding out what his name is.
