My octopus rubescens laid eggs approximately 8 weeks ago. She was captured in the wild around 4 months before that, and I was told it was unlikely that her eggs would be fertile and hatch. But..I checked the eggs today and there are 2 red spots on each egg that look like eyes. I read that rubescens eggs hatch in 6-8 weeks. Does anyone know if those red spots mean that the eggs have developed? If so, they should hatch pretty quickly and I'm not at all prepared to rear them! Do rubescens eat mysis and amphipods (like the other species you discussed in this forum)?
