well my blue spiny lobster was killed this morning by my oversized coral banded in my reef tank so i figured hey this little 1 inch tail would be a good meal for the octo... so into the tank it went... only to be devoured immediatly by the octo who was in the meantime eating a fiddler crab which was promply dropped when he smelled the lobster..

this could be bad i thought later to myself... damnit ive spoiled the octo!!! this things gonna cost more to feed than my girlfriend!!!

Hey, don't shoot the messenger !!!

And, not to worry, Octos are just as finicky when dining ( "I'd like the chicken salad, butthatisbreastmeatisntit?, with the dressing on the side,no,no, I said blue cheese,not rouquefourt") as human females, so the chances are, he/she will return to a regular diet with a zest !!! (lucky little devilfish though, can't blame it!)

When one of my sons had a Bd we fed a leg to G2 and he also pounced on it and ate the whole thing....luckily he went back to crabs....

I'm refraining from comment on the other discussion going on here!!! :mrgreen:

Just don't offer your octo mashed potatoes. Seriously.

Oh, and Greg, make sure your female counterpart (I LOVE talkin weird! :biggrin2: ) doesn't read this thread, else you'll get THIS: :yelling:. (Stirrin up the $#!4 probably isn't right, but hey, I can't resist!)
