A little about myself, I manage about a total of a thousand gallons of saltwater tanks with fish and coral. I set my first saltwater tank up in 1980 and have loved the hobby ever since then. I have never had an octopus until 4 months ago when a buddy of mine went diving off the coast of SC. and brought up a nice conk shell, little did he know until on the way back there was an octopus in it. He brought it to me to try keep alive. She has been happly eating 2 fiddler crabs a day and doing great. I say SHE because this evening at closing I got to see the birth of three babies! I looked in the barnikle, there are more eggs in it. I cut the lights off as I do every night not to distrub her. Can't wait to open in the morning to see what went on during the night. Taking the camera in the morning!!!
