Hi Jason and welcome to TONMO.com!

I hope some of our Canadian members will help you with finding an octopus. It seems more difficult to get octos in Canada but we have members keeping them.

A vulgaris is a good octopus but is rather large. Maybe you could start with something smaller, like a bimac, if you can find one.

Good luck with your octo project!

Nancy

I live in Southern California, and if you can keep your water temp under 72 degrees F (22 C) (ideally 62-67 F (17-19 C), I'm willing to try to catch a young bimac for you, package it for shipping, and give it to you for free. The catch is that you would need to pay the shipping company (Southwest Airlines Cargo) about $95 ($98 Canadian) for NFG ("Next Flight Guaranteed") shipping to Toronto, and pick it up at the airport. I posted the details here.
