Just scored this tiny neon green gig a few days ago. I’ve been searching for a small gig for a while and finding a neon one was a huge plus, I would have been happy with a healthy tan one lol. I got it from a private importer who I found though a friend. He only brings in small ones cause he claims they ship better. Anyway it was a 4hr road trip but definitely worth it! It’s been in captivity for a few months and I’ve had it a few days, so far so good.

I will try to post a video soon since it looks much better in motion.

The color looks good though I'd expect the tentacles to be longer given that it's been in captivity for so long and in your tank for a few days. Has it deflated at all?

Yes those pictures are from the day I added it to the tank, the tentacles are longer now that it has settled in. I will try to post a video later and no it hasn’t deflated in my tank or the suppliers.

To those asking for information on the supplier I will ask him if he’d like me to give out his contact info. He is located in southern Long Island and he does ship but I didn’t want to take any chances so I drove out there to pick it up. This is his personal tank

Yes it is, do you know Tom? I actually just scored another beautiful gig from him, larger than the neon green one and both are doing great in the larger tank.
I’ll try to get some pics soon

Yea unfortunately I do. He took payment for 2 gigs and never sent them. After a while he stopped responding. He hasn’t signed on to R2R since then.

Oh wow sorry to hear. Honestly I’ve never had a bad experience with him.
