Im still out of work, so in the past year, I got rid of all my seahorse tanks, and when my octopus died, I didnt get another. Mostly financial reasons. Also availability on the octopus. I got one from tom in florida last year, and it lived for over 8 months and was real healthy. I pretty much decided to give it a rest for a while stored all my empty tanks. So today Im in the local Korean giant supermarket. They have a section of tanks maybe 150 gallons each . Tilapia, lobsters... I see a tank with about 30 octopus. Maybe 2-1/2" - 3" head size. Tentacles Im guessing maybe 12" I couldnt believe it. I never see octopus even in the best fish stores. I talked to the older korean guy who was cleaning the tanks. He said they get new ones in every friday. I asked him if they sell that many , to need new ones every week? He said they all die in a week. So they throw them out and get a new shipment every friday. I couldnt believe it! Plus guess the cost? $14 each. Im thinking about setting up anothe rtank to give anothe rone a shot. At that price...how bad can it go, and also...it bothers me that they all just starve to death. They seemed pretty healthy and active. No cover ...just bare tanks. What do you guys think? Worth a try. I mean at the very worst...Im out only $14 mike I knew right away...they dont feed them!
