In order to make mine feel more comfortable around me, I was wondering if everyone here hand feeds their octo, or at least gets them to feel comfortable around your hand. I slowly approached with a hermit crab yesterday, and he retracted a little into his rock, but not much at all. Not wanting to rush matters I left the hermit 1 inch away from him, and right after I took my hand away he attacked it. Im just curious as to how people begin to play with or make their octo feel comfortable around them. Also I had a great look at him yesterday, and noticed an orange background on his ocelli. That means I can feel confident I have a hummelincki!
