Hi Clownfish,

It's risky to rely on just one type of food. He may think they're fine, but octos definately have their preferences. You should have some snails and hermit crabs in the tank, too. The clams are usually sold for baby bimacs, who grew up eating them.

Did you ask whether your pygmy octo has eaten the clams before?

Hope all goes well and your little octo arrives soon.

Gather that your parameters are all good??? O's across the board, and such...just out of curiosity, weren't you just cycling a tank, or was that another one?
Be sure to send in pics of the little guy when he shows up!

What makes you say we "don't care" ? No offense, but it really appears that you are rushing into this rather quickly, without thinking of what it is going to do to the octopus...why not wait a while, get your tank established, and get a captive bred bimac that is going to give you a lot more fun in the long run than a short lived pygmy octo?

It costs a lot to ship anything overnight, particularly a package big enough to hold a bag of water and an octo.

Most of us have spent over a thousand dollars on our octo setups. Even then, my little guy died within a week.

There's nothing inexpensive about keeping cephalopods. There also isn't any instant gratification. How many posts do we see from people who've taken the financial plunge and they haven't seen their octopus since they put it in the tank two months prior?
