Just picked up a Briareus from Tom. Acclimated for 3 hours before adding him to an empty 40 gallon tank (will move to a large tank when ready). Tom shipped him with a cup that had a bunch of holes drilled in it. The octo has NOT let go of the cup since being placed in the tank, even overnight. When I went to check on him in the middle of the night with my little flashlight, he actually pulled the cup with him around the tank. Only other tank inhabitants are small hermits, and one 3" crab (no idea on species, just sort of a big regular crab). He did take a piece of fresh shrimp after being in the tank a few hours yesterday. Will post pics later today.
