    my octo hasn't looked good for the last week and i sort of new the end was near. she came out last night and had really bad corkscrew and was twitching a lot. she could barely move it seemed like. i could really tell she was struggling. i got really attached to her. i woke up this morning and she had died in the night. i will miss her.:cry:

    Sorry to hear that FishKid.

    You didn't have your octopus very long, and it might be old age, but you need to test the water thoroughly and make sure all the parameters were OK. You need to do this in case you want to get another octopus.

    Sorry to hear, as said above, make sure everything with your system is A OK before you get another? Do you plan on getting another?

    i tested my water a few hours before he died and ammonia was 0 nitrite was 0 nitrate was 5 ph was 8.2

    i want to get another octo but i want to wait until i have my 75g ready and then i will get a briareus. but i want to wait until i can get one from someone that knows it's not at the end of it's life. does anyone know where i can get a young briareus?
