Does an octo eat themselves. My octo hasnt been eating anything that i give him for about 5 days now. I feed him the same stuff as always (raw shrimp, scallops & sometimes crayfish) but he wont take them anymore. He grabs on to them like he is going to eat them & then he just lets go or pushes the food away. I noticed that some of his tenticals look like the have cut off or look like they have been ate on the tips of them but the only thing i have in the tank with him is 3 Turbo snails. So i was wonding if he did it himself. Some reason he is not as active as much as he has always been. He comes out of his den a few times a day but just sits in 1 or 2 places. I dont see any eggs in his den. I do a 15% - 20% water change every week & my water levels test are good. I am going to try to feed him an emerald crab & a damsel fish tonight to see what happens. Does anyone know why he might be acting strange or about his tenticals being like that or anything else.
