    That's a very interesting short article as information on Vulcanoctopus is not easy to find. I didn't realise the animal was so small, mantle length 52mm maximum recorded so far.

    Now there's a challenge for all you ceph-keepers out there. It looks like you'll have to home-grow some Riftia vent worms first.
