I got my new Briareus from Tom's Caribbean today. It started off touch and go but he seems to be doing well now. Guess one thing to take away from my experience is that even if the octopus looks dead, if it still has some color, warm it up. It doesn't hurt you to warm it up and who knows, it might magically come back to life like mine did. This is what he looked like when i first got him. Anywho he seems to be doing well and is busy hiding in my tank right now. Pictures of my tank set-up and of him if i see him will follow in the near future.
