Ocho is getting to be quite a character. I made some jar puzzles with plastic lids and put some shrimp in them and Ocho finds his way in through the little holes and such. If I wave at the tank from about three feet away he walks up to the glass and stands up really tall on his tentacles and flashes colors. When ever my hand goes in the tank he comes runnin over to inspect. My little buddy is allways on the prowl lookin for a morsel to snack on. He isn't quite sneky enough to catch shrimp on his own yet so i still get to hand feed him. Well when I get some more pictures I'll post them. Gotta get the wife to use the nikon because I stink at taking pictures. See everyone later :)
