This is most awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I too have had many things come up missing in the tank but was baffeled to why,, I have yet to see anything :? I stumbled onto a great deal at a garage sale, I got 125gal with stand, lights and all equip for $300. So i transfered the the tank, way cool, but most of my hermits and my arrowcrab, have been eaten by something :notworth: I really hope i have one of Jetta's babies.

Hi Debbie,

So happy to hear that you have signs of a possible octo. If one can make it in my small tank, which is only 19 gallons, it seems you might have an even better chance.

I just never imagined they could remain invisible for so long and gave up on one surviving a long time ago.

So, sneak in and have a peak in your tank after the lights are off, and use a flashlight with a red lens and see if you can spot anything! And leave out some food - it may disappear.

I'm really hopeful that you have one, too.

Nancy

Hi Debbie,

Don't be disappointed if you don't see anything at first - these little briareus babies are VERY reclusive. Little Pod has taken to hiding again. I saw her at 2:00 am last night, sitting at the mouth of her den. But no little octopus all day today, or this evening.

Thanks for the 6 hatchlings, Debbie, and giving me this opportunity to be an octo mom again! I'm happy for Jetta, too, because she was a nice octopus.

I've written all the dates you gave me in my big book and am keeping an octo journal again.

Hope you spot one!

Nancy

JUST ONE?

:!: :!: :!: WHOA, HOLD ON A MINUTE. :!: :!: :!: It seems like you're assuming only one lived. If one ocotpus can hide from you for four months.......how do you know there aren't others? :shock:

I know they're supposedly canabalistic, but maybe another one avoided a gruesome fate and is in there somewhere, plotting vengance for the twisted murder of it's brothers and sisters?! :goofysca: sick.

Well, the answer is, it's possible but not likely, given the small size of the tank and availability of dens. Now if Debbie finds octo signs in her larger tank, there you do have a possiblity of more.

You'd better stop watching those movies :) . Seriously.

I'm so glad that one of them actually made it, however unlikely, lets hope we'll find more. I love the name too.
