    I was just wondering if aquaculturestore.com is the cheapest place to get food for an octo. If it is, then that's ok, I can afford it. I was just wondering if there was a place to get food for cheaper. Thanks.

    livebrineshrimp.com has feeder shrimp, 'live marine janitors', and the prices, once you include shipping are close (I think livebrineshrimp ends up being a little cheaper). Livebrineshrimp uses much more packaging in terms of styrofoam than the aquaculturestore does, and aquaculturestore accepts pay pal while livebrineshrimp does not. One last thing - aquaculturestore ships via usps, while livebrineshirmp sends DHL.

    Whew!

    It's less expensive to buy larger quantities but not practical if you're not set up with a place to keep extra crabs or whatever you're ordering.

    Ok, I'll keep that in mind. I don't have a place set up for extra food yet, but I could set one up pretty easily.
