Hello, like my username suggest, I’m a newbie in octopus caring, I have kept cuttlefish before with success though, as I was saying I just bought my first day octopus(?) juvenile and fed it one and a half clam which it eat promptly, one of the leg is broken but I think it’s not hindering it, but now the octopus is breathing heavily which I consider danger zone (13 breaths to 10 seconds). I must admit that the tank is a three and a half month tank(the required cycle for octopus is 6?) and I’m scared the ammonia in the tank may be slowly killing my octopus (I don’t have test kit yet). The tank inhabitants are a small colony of GSP, two nassarisus snail and two white clams. Any suggestion or pointer of which action must I do now? Thanks.
