One of my goals for the past couple of years has been to get one or more species of pygmy octopus into culture. That almost certainly means a large-egged species. So far, we have only had success rearing O. mercatoris. After a lot of searching, I finally got my first O. micropyrus - a small female. I don't know what the chances are that she will be carrying sperm, so if anyone comes up with a male, I would be interested in mating them and splitting the offspring.
