    Well, its been a few years since first being interested in the little cephs...and I got out of the hobby for a bit, but not that I find myself working for an aquatics store, it makes it much harder not to be back into the hobby more. However...I think I personally would be more interested in smaller octopus species like the o. mercatoris (especially if they are a bit easier to bred)...which if I'm correct, are more from the Atlantic ocean...and I may be uprooting my wife and I to Hong Kong this year at some point...and wondering if anyone knows about availability of smaller species in that area...if you have any knowledge I'd greatly appreciate it while I continue to do searching as well :mrgreen:

    We do have members in Hong Kong, and it's certainly an area where octopuses should be available. Maybe you should put something in the title of this thread like Octo in Hong Kong, so that it will attract more attention.

    hmm....is there a way for me to change the title? When I go to edit post that is not letting me change that portion.

    If you will edit the post using the go advanced and change the post title, I can change the thread title to match.

    You might want to check the local fish markets in Hong Kong. A lot of cultures eat octopus especially in Asia. We have one member on here that has been trying to keep octopuses he finds at his local Korean market.

    yea...the only thing that scares me about doing that is whether or not I pick a species suited for me tank or not.
