Awesome video! What did you take it with? That damsel looked like he was harrassing him. Any chance of catching it?

no, no way of catching it in a 240
he has never harrassed him

he does sometimes sweeep his tail close by him , but it doestn bother the octo , he just pushes him away and does what he wants to do

ill see if i can take another video of him jetting and pouncing on a crawdad tommorow, but he is full today , so i wont be able to do it to night

Hi marinerules,

That's a good video and thanks for posting! Will look forward to a crawdad video.

As for the damsel, it looked to me like it went for your bimac's eyes - we've had reports of other damsels doing that. Your octo turned darker and retreated into his den - a defensive move.

I agree with Carol, your octo would be better off if you removed the damsel.

i cant catch him in that tank

ive never seen him bother his eyes

sometimes he eats his food out of his den and on the sand, but he always retreates to his den after he finishes his meal.

Ok, now I am going to probably catch some flak for this, but the easiest way (not the nicest) to remove a damsel from a reef tank is to....fish for it. Yep, I know... :oops: I use small trout hooks, bait it with whatever, and catch the little bugger...transfer him gently into another tank or recepticle and remove the hook (to ease this, I file off the barb on the hook) I haven't had one die on me yet (knock on wood)...
Another option is to use a glass jar to scoop up the damsel, but this can take forever...and yes, I do feel a little silly baiting a hook and lowering into a tank. But it does work.

I've got two damsels cycling my tank right now. I've got another one they can go into if need be when the octo arrives, however I might just see how it goes. These two fish are the dumbest organisms I have ever come across: they will be swimming less than an inch away from a chunk of food and not touch it. On occasion they will run away from food. I've had them for about a month and I've only ever seen one of them eat.
