I am wondering what to make of the wildly disparate prices for on-line octo suppliers. As a quick example: caribbean_fish_collectors (Ebay listing) of unknown species, perhaps Briareus: $15 + $40s/h. another Ebay listing for Octopus Briareus: $45 + $70s/h. coldwater marine listing of Bimac (when available): $350 + s/h liveaquaria, unspecified species (claim from indonesia): $60 + s/h Is this just a function of species, in that Bimac's are just a lot more expensive? Is a price of around $50 typical for an octopus with a somewhat unknown species type? Just trying to get my bearings here.
