Hi there, We became parents for the first time last Friday! Yeeeaaayy!After 8mnths our new baby octo came down from Qld. we named him SQUINT.. fairly appropriate since you have to squint to see him!! . As all new parents do we have some questions. First is does anyone have any idea what species he is!!?? All we know is that he is blood red in colour and would have come off the inner reef of Great Barrier.. he hasnt come out much and will only seem to take food in the dark which could be because he's nocturnal/or just a little shy still. . Squint had his first feed 3 days after we had him of live crab... through the other days I had tried to get him to take fresh raw prawn meat but no go... and he would only attack the crab after i pushed it into the den he has made himself... last night though i accidentally dropped the crab as i was putting it in the tank and quick as a flash he dived on it so I am guessing it is a good thing that he is hunting on his own after only 5 days! Any ideas though on how to get him onto some prawn meat muscles etc. cause it gets pretty cold down here in Winter and i dont really fancy going crab hunting on the rocks in the pouring rain! . Last but not least the nitrate is a little higher than i would like... 12ppm, he isn't seeming to mind to much though and i am wary about water changing too much while he is still settling in... any comments?
