I got a call from LFS in Pa last night that they had gotten an octopus in. Jess and I left today at 5:30 and just got home at 11PM. I don't know what he is, but he tried to escape the bag while dripping, crawled almost to the top of the bag out of water. Once in the tank, the serpent starfish perked right up. It's like the starfish knows there's an octopus in the tank again. Anyway the new octo was not even in the tank 3 minutes when he discovered the one last little crab that I've had for about 4 months. They had another one that was quite a bit larger, but I did not get it as I am still waiting on a replacement vulgaris. One of this ones legs has quite a chunk out of it. His mantle is the size of a large grape. I'm thinking one of the longer arm species, could be a dwarf as he reminds me of some I had a few years ago. First pics are terrible, but pics!
