Are there signs he's still eating? If so, I would leave him alone. Sometimes they take longer to adjust and disturbing his environment is just going to freak him out again. Patience!!!! :smile:

Glad you found your octo.

Maybe it would come out more if you had a more natural lighting scheme - lights on during the day and dark except for red light at night. You might have success with moonlights (blue) at night.
