Hi,
Unfortunately my octopus, Schnitzel, seems to be sick. Do you recognize any of these issues? Maybe senescence?
1. Out all day and night
2. Less active, not moving within six inches of where sticking to the wall
3. Much less color changes, stays a milky beige-white
4. Hasn't excepted food of any sort for over 1 week

Water conditions are all fine.
Please answer back ASAP

I'm pretty sure they do not feed during senescence. This is the end of their life stage, I don't think you can stop it. Sensescene is the deathbed for ocotpus as they are highly aged and at the end of their life cycle.
