    I got a call from my lfs today they said that two new octopi will be arriveing tommorow. I am very exticed because it took alot away from my when possidein passed, we were just starting to get to know each other and he would follow my fingure around which i though was pretty rad. Hopefully these are a healthly pair of a male and female so i could make this tread interesting! =]

    Brandy,
    Be sure you are looking at a pair of O.mercatoris and not O.briareus. They will both be white but the O.briareus will have much, much longer arms. The arms should be no mor than two times the mantle length for mercs.

    Looking forward to your pictures and journal.
