I've got a 80 gallon tropical tank all set up to house an octopus, but I don't want to get a collected one. Does anyone know where I can get a tank bred small octopus?

:welcome: Tank-raised octos are hard to find lately, but I believe marinebio_guy had some young bimacs recently... see this thread around post 166 and the followups.

I figured there probably weren't too many people named Emilee looking for a tank-bred octopus... And the premium ceph forum has a new aggregator that points out ceph-related news items, so I was handed the puzzle pieces pretty directly... I don't normally read Alaskan newspapers just for culture, I'm afraid...

I assume you already found the "Octopus Availability" thread, but a new post today reminded me if this bimac source, too:
