about a year and 2 months ago i went to a beach out in San Pedro California and was digging around. I found a bottle with some mud in it and poured out the muddy water on the sand. Inside this bottle was a very very tiny bimac octo ("2 Spot" the wrapping octopus). I already owned a reef tank so i decided to bring him home and try and care for the little guy. I did some research and set up a small tank under my 240g display (240 at the time, currently running a 300g). slowly acclimated his temps and slowly lowered the temps to my reef display (ended up around 75-76 degrees stressing the reef fish a bit). after about a month i released him into my display. Yes he sometimes ate a fish or 2 but he was with me for about a year and 2 months or so. He had recently died about 3-4 weeks ago. here are a few pics of 2 Spot. I am now in the market for another octo. This time i decided to do it with careful research to make sure i can provide the best possible living situation possible for the new ceph. Well... just wanted to say hi... so..... "hi"
