I saw a documentary referencing the Discovery channel special where the good Doctor Steve O'Shea caught some juvenile Architeuthis . What I don't understand is why they died... the video said that they did fine in cylindrical tanks, but as soon as they were put in a rectangular tank, they sank to the bottom, went belly up and died. What was the significance of a rectangular tank that would cause the squid to die? Is whatever caused these squid to randomly die the same thing that makes other species of squid impossible to keep in captivity?
It's worth noting that I saw a documentary that referenced the Discovery channel show, not the show it's self.
It was incredibly sad to see those creatures die. That would have been a dream come true to see one raised to maturity. I wish there was something I could do to help.
