Hi I'm manager of a Marine department in a petstore. We former had very good succes with keeping different octopus' (Wunderpus photogenicus, Octopus Vulgaris) for display/show. One of our Octopus Vulgaris laid eggs one day after arrival to its aquarium, and I read that the female will die shortly after hatching. Should I remove the eggs to prevent my beloved Co-worker from dying? Or will it not have any effect? When does the male fertilize the eggs? When the female lays them or before? If they are fertilized before laying, can I put them in another tank for hatching? Im very stunned over finding this forum! Im a very big Octopus/squid fan, but haven't found so much information as this forum can provide! Thanks!
