Just want to introduce you to my new water-pet that came two days ago. Its a Castilloctopus Macropus a kind of red-brown octo. It arrived in very good condition. While acclimating the water he already wanted to swim into the tank and instantly played with my toy water balls. The other day he already strongly pulled out the shrimp from my stick. He's very strong and over 25 cm/10 inch in total length. Still indecisive about his name. The only drawback on my side is the fact that his species is nocturnal + early morning.

Welcome to you and your fine looking octopus.
I see you are in Germany. Where did buy your new octopus?

My local pet shop-store which has many stores in Germany got it from DeJong, Marinelife in Holland. That's a wholesellor for Marinelife. Unfortunately they don't sell to private persons so I needed my local pet shop.

I have just been looking for my octo and I have found him sitting onto the heating-rod!!!
Isnt this strange?? The water temperature is 24' C. Hence I think right at the heating element it's probably a lot more.
What do you guys think about his behavior?
