    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

    Carol's Rummler, who laid eggs and is now deceased, is the most recent one I know of.
