    I've had her for less than a month.
    She is the first octo.
    I think she was wild caught in florida so maybe we will be lucky.
    Any suggestions on rearing these?
    How can I tell if they are fertile?
    Gestation period?
    Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
    She was and is very beautiful.


    thanks..

    Could you estimate how large an individual egg is? Some species lay large eggs, some lay small eggs. You have a much better chance of raising the babies if they come from large eggs.

    Yes, you have a beautiful octopus.
