    Hello all, and thanks in advance to any reply's...I was wondering if all Octi die fast, or what is the average length one survives. I have two tanks now (reef-swim) & (Preditor-Hawian Dragon eel), and just want to know if a third would be a waist for a creature that dies real fast????I do love them though.
    Thanks,
    Phil

    :welcome: to TONMO, Phil!

    O. bimaculoides are the most often kept species here, lasting less than a year with us ( :( ) but are definentaly worth it. :)

    Well, actually the ever popular bimacs can also live up to 16 months, its seems like a short time but you'll love every moment of it:)
