I had a brief photo op this morning! Seems like Inklet is getting more curious as to what is looming outside his tank all the time! This afternoon his new spot is a shell right in the front of the tank!!! :mrgreen:

He looks a lot different than the other octos, he seems to be staring at the camera. Cute little guy, love that shade of red in the second pic and his little ring. :)

Carol, again with the sweet torture. Your pictures really make me regret being the pet-murdering spawn of Hell that I am.

:biggrin2:

The shell is 3" x 3". He's holed up in it this morning with acouple shells as his door but an eyeball stratigically placed to keep an eye on us!!! :mrgreen: Should be receiving my fiddler crab order today so hopefully there will be some alittle smaller to entice him with! He's wiped out almost all the local snails in the tank!!! Looking at Lil Pumpkin and Inklet, they're about the same size! Lil P might be just a tad bigger, but not by much!!!

Temp is 68. Lil P was the size of a dime curled up, maybe smaller when he arrived. I figure he has to be maybe 5 to 6 months old now. He's been with me for 4.

75 is Inklets temp! Interesting!! But I really think Lil P was such a tiny baby, he could have come from the same batch being he came from Fish Supply.

When do you get yours BOE?

Tonight Inklet ate his first fiddler crab! Came home to a box of 20 sitting on my front porch. They arrived from Florida in great shape!! Only lost 1 and he puts in extra I quess to acount for a fatality or two. Anyway as soon as I put it in the tank Inklet was on it. I have started clipping the small claws as I saw how much one crab was hurting Lil P. The large male crabs don't seem to pinch.

Heres another shot of Inklet happily eating his first crab in his shell!

He's in a 29 Gal. I know eventually I may have to convert my 45 flatback hex to salt for him! Or I do have a 50 gal pentagon, but I bought it used and am not sure on the history of copper usage. Could make that Fresh and still use my 45 for Lil P.....Hmmmmm... Maybe we need a poll on how many tanks everyone has!!!!
