Meet Oscar...He arrived by Fedex about 2 hours ago as a replacement from saltwaterfish.com. I acclimated, but secured the top after Ickily's journey around my room, 1/2 hour went by, went to check on him so I cut the wire tie, opened the bag and here's this octopus intent on climbing out of the bag. He would have no part of going back in so I ended up picking him up by hand and putting him in the tank. He sat for a while in the open, and now is sitting under a piece of rock eating a crab. They said he's a Caribbean Reef octopus, whatever that means. I'm thinking he may be a dwarf but Mercatis? Seems to be doing very well so far, so keeping fingers crossed!
