Big day was today and my first octo arrived about 1:30. I ordered from MDL, they had no clue what they had and could/would not send me pictures of what was in stock. I ordered the cheapest (and hopefully smallest) one listed, as assorted octo (USA) west. I am figuring on a bimac. I am pleasantly surprised at the size, very small, mantle about the size of my thumb and maybe 6" tip to tip. Pretty sure its a bimac but my lack of experience may come in to play, I'll post some pics for ID help in a day or two. I drip acclimated him/her about 2 hours before releasing him/her. After a brief once over of the tank he settled on the side wall and proceeded to curl the tips of his legs up, not good I'm thinking. After about 3 hrs of this I'm very concerned, but hoping its just some shipping stress. He is periodically morphing between a neutral gray to black. He finally moves and begins to exhibit what I would considered normal octopus behavior. Moving about the rock work. He is showing dramatic color and texture, blending in with his surroundings, very cool. Unfortunately he arrived before his food, but I imagine he must be hungry. On a whim I tempted him with some thawed krill on a stick, to my surprise, and after a brief tug-of-war, he took it. He worked on it about 5 minutes then rejected most of it. He seems to be very outgoing already. He shys back when someone approaches but doesn't attempt to completely hide. I will be very nervous the next few nights until he settles in. Wish me luck!
