Hi RT

glad to see that everything is okay so far...

I would like to point out something that often happens before it pops up, now, it might not, but just in case and that is that once an octo settles into a new tank it maybe has a day or two of exploring, then it seems to dissapear... dont think the worst!!!!

the thing is that its just a baby and it has to hide as in the wild it is just a bite sized snack for a predator so if you dont see it for a day or two dont start pulling out rocks to see if its okay... it will be!!!

nice pic too... what size is the octo?

Rockthis, do you mean you live in Orange County, or is there a city called Orange that's not on my map? I'm thinking that you may live near the coast and can collect good food for your octo. Also, the ocean off southern California is home to bimacs.

(By the way, it would be nice if all of you would indicate where you live in your profile. It sometimes helps us in answering questions, or we may be able to refer you to someone in your area.)

unlikely but I suppose that they might share some genetic's if they are intertwined species. :)

Hi everyone,

He is still in the cave he was in all day yesterday and all night last night. He seems to be ok though. today i am going to go to my LFS and try some live food and see if he comes out.

Yes, i do live in orange county, but i also live in the city of orange. Strange yet cool.

The octo's mantle is about 3/4 inch. Im not sure what his armspan is.

thanks for the replies everyone.

a fishmarket might have more selective choices of food, I only go to these places for fish food, not LFS where all they sell is that frozen junk they call "fish food". :roll:
