    I talked (on the phone) to the people that run this site. They raise captive bred Bimacs, cephs prepared for tank life. They sell many feeder options, another refreshing thought. As a non-octo person, I would like to know the opinions of the folks that know.

    Anything that takes the pressure off wild species is a good thing :)

    Most people on this site (from the US) who have bought octopuses have ordered them from Octopets or Fish Supply, both of which have tank raised bimacs.

    Including delivery and the octo from fishsupply $35 bucks from Octopets would be a pretty good deal.
