can you get vulgaris aquacultured like u can a bimac

all i know of the vulgaris is that they can get bigger than a bimac

but also , how do the two (vulgaris and bimac) compare when it comes to color changing personality and ect.

People (with big tanks) do sometimes keep vulgaris and they seem to make a good pet octo. They have plenty of personality. Downside is that they like to escape.

As far as I know, the bimac is the only tank-raised octo available to the public.

I don't think vulgaris are diurnal while bimacs definitely are... Bimacs also display two iridescent eye spots just below the real eyes.
