Well, it's here. It arrived this morning and showed up in great condition. It was very active before I even had the bag floating. I was surprised to see that there was no heat pack but the baby was fine and the water was very clean. Jim at octopets has been very helpful and quick to email back when I had a question...I would definitely recommend him to future octo owners.
The little octo is tiny, much smaller than Roxy was. The mantle is the size of a medium sized grape and the skinny little arms are about 2 inches. It acclimated well and was quick to exit the bag. It has been exploring the whole tank and follows my finger up the glass.
I never told my girlfriend that I was ordering another one. This will be her Valentine surprise when she gets home from work.

Hi John,

Glad everything went well with your baby bimac. Sounds really small but has lots of self confidence. Imagine, these are raised without ever seeing a predator!

Do we have a second generation of bimac siblings forming?
