Hi Drew, and welcome to TONMO.com :welcome:

I have seen O. joubini offered for sale.

But are you sure you want a pygmy? They tend to live only 6 months and are usually not very friendly.

Also, one of our Tonmo members bought what was supposed to be a pygmy, and it grew into quite a large octopus, so you have to be careful.

well i cant affoard a big setup and ive talked to some people who own O. mercatoris and they seem to be quit interactive and cheap and live for a year or two. But you guys are the experts. Please tell me more of your thoughts and opinions.

Thanks
Drew
