Do you have hiding places for your octopus? If you can see him when he hides, he needs a better place. Good hiding places will help with the jetting. What size is your tank?

Oh, I see you posted the tank size while I typed. Yes 60 cm long is too small for vulgaris. The tank should be at least 4x longer than the animal.
I got a jar for him,but actually he sleep inside few times,maybe a jar is not suit for
variabilis.My tank is 60*60*60
Unfortunately,I can't afford a larger tank yet,as a student.
Maybe I can free a vulgaris when it grow up.But before that,more problems should be solved to keep a vulgaris alive.They die easily,by the way it's nice to talk with you, please give more suggestions on vulgaris later when I get one.I will be very appreciated.

We look forward to your next attempt. Look for opaque (where you cannot see into the container) items where he can hide. They hide in small rock caves in the wild.
