Misty has been acting weird.
Has a reddish/brown stripes thing going on, really testing the top of the tank, sticking her arms in the over flow slots but not going in.
Not eating the crabs.
Right now she is a bit gray, and she has been a little more gray than usual.

We tested the water, all is well. Doing a water change in a day or two (just had the right axel joint/bar fall out of my car, missed most of today at work ugh).

Keep ya'll posted

Sigh.

Water change happened.
Fed today, spit out half yeaterday.
Looks like she sampled the food again actually.
Her eyes are really bothersome looking :(

Feeding the brittle. Are silversides ok? We have been feeding it shrimp every other day. I read they eat other stuff; alge, pods...

Misty swims more ethereal like lately. Floaty, using the tank current. More jetting around, less clinging to walls of the tank.

Is not wanting to go to work also a symptom of keeping an octopus late in their lives?
Sigh.
