Congratulations! And welcome to Ochi!

Did Ochi arrive in good condition?

And that's an unusual name - how did you come up with "Ochi"?

thanks everyone. he/she arrived great. nothing at all to indicate worries. Just added tank water to acclimate and he is just jetting around playing on the ledges that the bag creates in the water.

How did I come up with Ochi.....(Long and Short version)
1. Wife and I were married in Ocho Rios Jamaica
2. Ocho Rios means - Eight Rivers in Jamaican
3. Ochi is there native slang name for Ocho Rios
so.... Ochi is slang for eight

figured it was fitting for an octo

OCHI the OCTO :D

Excellent condition. No ink in bag no signs of stress, good color. :D

Once he was acclimated I let him crawl onto my very clean hand ( which he did very happily) and gently lead him into his new home.

Watched Ochi explore for almost an hour before I had to come back to work. I miss waching him already,....oh well 4 hours to go before I can go back home. :P

me too scouse, I was actually concerned of dumping any of the shipping water into Ochi's tank, so I saw no other way(was not using a net!!!!!) but he agreed and crawled right on for a ride. Hopefully, he will always be this accepting. I believe it can only go up from here!! :D

Thanks btw on the name complimnet! 8)
