Its pretty much a total gamble.


When ever i have order an "Indonesian" I have received an adult Aculeatus. Cool animals and I love them, but by the time they get to us they only live a month or two longer.

They only recently started selling the Mexican ones so i am curious to see what they are. The Carribean I recieved from them was a Mercatoris.


so yeah....LiveAquaria is like a box of chocolates ya never know whatcha gonna get.

I don't like to gamble but I love boxes of chocolates! It's cool how you can get something different every time. :P Anywho, I'll get some from LiveAquaria since I don't have a specific one I want and don't necessarily want to breed them though if they lay viable eggs I give my word that I'll try my best to raise them. Also, getting a different species each time will help me to decide which species I like the most. Which would you recommend I get first? Indonesian? Mexican (though aren't these cold water octopi? I don't have money for a chiller :/ )? Carribean? Fijian (I made this up. :P It means "from Fiji")?

Okay, and I presume these would be able to be held in a 75 gallon? Also, is there a chance I may get a Blue Ringed Octopus since they are from Indonesia?

Yes 75 gallon should be fine to hold anything you get from LA. I think your safe, I dont believe anyone has ever recieved a bluering from LA.

What species of Octopus would I possibly get if I bought it from http://www.liveaquaria.com/ ? It says they originate from Caribbean, Fiji, Indonesia, Mexico: http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=497+500+1719&pcatid=1719 Could you give me possible species I could get if I ordered one from any of those places? (they are separated into origin sells.) Thanks!
both times i have ordered from them i received Abdopus Aculeatus, as far as ive seen thats pretty much the norm from liveaquaria
