    Update on DAS MEGAS he ate a clam last night did some excavating cuz i have a big pile of newly disturbed sand near the castle. Both Emerald Crabs are now kaput and this morning he was eyeballing me from near the open clam shell next to the new dig site.
    seems to be unafraid and simply wary now.

    this series if viewed first to last is Megas approaching the glass spotting his reflections getting mad at it then running when it became apparent that the Octo in the mirror was HEADSTRONG
    and yes the camera on the PDA SUCKS but its what i had at the time

    and this is the First victim begging for his life at the edge of the tank
    this was very sad but it is the way of things.

    It's nice to see the acclimation process and the whole tank.

    The crab is cute - the eye stalks always get me - but I'd eat him, too.

    im no expert but Octopets says its a Bimac
    my Live Rock came from LFS called Seacave
    the Red Algea is a low light algea since the tank does not recive any direct sunlight.
