while you're at it, be sure to get on their case for all those anenomes they threw in there with her! i was so mad when i saw those. hardly any way for her to move around without getting stung.

Here's another place that has a serious problem - this is the Dallas World Aquarium and their GPO can barely move (it lives in the dark area about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom) without enountering anemones. This is entitled "The British Columbia Display" - what a waste of a GPO.

Anyway, I'm trying to do get the attention of someone in charge and do something for the poor octo.

Not to mention the "Deadly and Dangerous" label with an octopus on it. :x
This is what happens when novices get a hold of Aquariums. :?

I agree that both cases are not suitable for any octopus let alone the GPO....

Is the GPO at Moody Gardens a new addition?
