From what i can tell probly a lesser chance of them being fertile and more of a chance that your octo will die. Make sure she eats! but congrats on getting the octo and her having eggs! be careful!

The octopus you bought must have been an adult, so there is a chance of the eggs being fertile. Your octo will take care of the eggs - she probably won't live more than another month or two. Be sure to offer her food - make sure you give it to her, because most likely she won't leave her eggs to hunt for food.
