### Quadratic Octagon Bloomers (QOB Rulespace)

First off, there are many QOBS. The original is in the rule B3ai4a/S3ai4a5ai6ac7c8, and is this:
`x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3ai4a/S3ai4a5ai6ac7c83o\$3o\$3o!`
Some alternates include
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B2ce3aj4ae6c/S1c2-c3ai4a5acj6acn782bo\$b3o\$5o\$b3o\$2bo!`
and
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3ai4a/S3i4a5ai6ac78b3o\$5o\$5o\$5o\$b3o!`

Rules with qobs usually expand... a LOT. even if they are stable, they can grow to enormous sizes before stabilizing.
EDIT: this is also a qob, but it's hollow:
`x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3ai4aw/S2e3aij4aiwz5iqry6an3o\$3o\$3o!`
it's also kinda dirty.
`x = 8, y = 10, rule = B3/S233b2o\$3b2o\$2b3o\$4bobo\$2obobobo\$3bo2bo\$2bobo2bo\$2bo4bo\$2bo4bo\$2bo!`

No football of any dui mauris said that.

Multiple bloomers in B3ai4a/S3i4a5ai6ac78 create intricate networks of "rivers" interacting.

### Re: Quadratic Octagon Bloomers (QOB Rulespace)

Yet another one, this time with only B2ce.
`x = 3, y = 3, rule = B2cek3j4et5cy6k/S14ceq5eij6ace7c8bo\$obo\$bo!`

Is there anything interesting in these rules?
`x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j2b2o\$b2o\$2o!`
