Don't be alarmed, nothing has passed on.

I was just wondering, what did people do with their octopuses when they have passed on to that "aquarium in the sky".

Burial at sea in a special canvas bag - I painted pictures of my octos on the bags. A beloved cleaner shrimp also was buried that way.

I guess I should mention that they stayed in the freezer until we could travel to the Gulf.

Many octo owners have chosen burial at sea, but those who are inland often bury them in the garden, sometimes with their feeding stick.

If I had a octo or any ceph as a pet, I would most probably freeze till I have a chance to return it to the ocean

I have had many a pet/critter enshrined in my freezer until I get around to burying them. I usually devote a special part of my freezer to critters, so it doesn't gross out my guests...
