    I'm adding Rupert to the List of Our Octopuses (top of the Journals and Photos forum)!

    I suspect that Rupert does come from Octopets but took the long way round to get to you.

    Nice pics, too.

    What sort of light do you over your octo tank? I have burgundy mushrooms in my little invertebrate tank and have been thinking of trying one in the larger tank.

    Oh and I am also certain Nancy is right about him originally coming from Octopets, since they supply every other online company, who sells Bimacs.
