    After my little hummelinki died I didn't think I was going to get another octo, but one of my wholesalers at my store let me know she got a little octo that wan't a mercatoris (I got one of those that I didn't make a journal for... pictures http://imgur.com/a/f39rl and a quick little video
    )
    for once, so I figured why not... :roll: Pics are from in the bag and night one in the tank. I've seen him in the rocks today but he hasn't come out yet.

    That arm action is how Sisturus got his name :grin:. It looks like a bumper year for O. briareus and I expect the crabbers will not be happy.

    The little guy was just out exploring the tank now (~2am-2:30) and I got a bunch of pictures. I'll put them up tomorrow once I go through them all. I think I've messed with the settings enough on my camera to take good pictures under the red LED.

    Hopefully the Exif info will be attached (it is missing from your others). If not would you mind posting your settings?

    There is a bunch more, but I didn't want to post too many.
