    I received an octopus 3 weeks ago from a source that irregularly brings them in from Haiti.

    Not being up on the ID, maybe someone here can enlighten me and anyone else interested. I am in Ft. Pierce, FL and he is for sale. He eats chunks of Silversides every other day.

    There is a video on my business FB page here - https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Cultured-Reef/783951311652694
    Thanks for looking.

    Susan, yes I have the octopus. He is Haitian readily eats Silversides even coming to the tweezers on occasion, depends on his mood and hunger level. I bought him for someone else who wasn’t prepared to house him properly. I refused to sell him. I will guarantee live arrival. If delayed or damaged from shipping that results in a loss he is not covered. UPS, FedEx and others no longer cover losses of livestock.
    If you are interested, PM me. If you have any questions call my toll free number (EDIT: number removed). I’d be happy to talk with you.

    Thanks,

    Dick

    Also, what are silversides and where can I get them? Are they dead or alive? I usually feed mine thawed shrimp.

    @Susan Grosskopf - I removed your phone number for your protection. TONMO is indexed by google; I imaging you don't want your number out there for everyone, for ever! :smile:

    PM is Private Message, you can send a private message by clicking on the "Inbox" link at the top of the page, and then "Start a Conversation". Here is the direct link to start a conversation. In the TO field, just put in Amphibious.

    Hope this helps!

    @Susan Grosskopf - You can also use (and I usually do both when I want to be sure someone gets my message) the message feature on facebook (Dick gave his FB page in the initial post). Clicking on the message button at the top of the FB page will give you a text box for typing and the message will be private to the individual.
