Hey guys,

I setup an 20gal and would like an dwarf octo. I know they are not the most active octo but would still like one. I am located in Arizona and the lfs can not order a dwarf only bimac and blue ring. So do any online sites offer them and for a ok price. I know TBS has octos but sometimes arnt dwarfs.

Well, they are not tank bred and kept on hand by any dealer, as far as I know. I believe that Tom's and Tampa Bay Saltwater sometimes have mercatoris. Mostly they are raised in labs and we have no access to them. But we've had people on Tonmo keep dwarfs before.
