Fluffy? FLUFFY? So, OK, I named Sistrurus after a snake (but a pygmy snake) but an octopus named after a CAT? Betty or Grable maybe for those great legs but Fluffy? Need more pictures!

Yes, Fluffy is quite a name! Nice looking octopus.

Where did you get him? - I'm trying to put the source on the List of Our Octopuses in addition to the other data.

I like the name and your reasoning is awesome!!!:sagrin: He's very cute! My octos have always had very different names especially if my sons or daughter get into the naming.

We've had a lot of octopus eye problems recently. Some discussion and remedies are already on the Octopus Care forum.

How large is your octopus - is it a young one or older?

another concern, a 1/2 inch section of arm got bitten off and propelled out of his conch shell "den". all of the parameters are fine but i did a small water change anyway. the new starfish(sand sifter) might be stressing him out but i think boredom is more likely so i boiled a couple of plastic balls and put them in the tank. hes still resting in his conch shell as usual so i don't know what he will think of the toys. hopefully they wont stress him further...

another 1/2 inch portion of arm just got bit off :/

Hmm.. are you saying crabs are taking the arm tips off or do you think the octopus is severing them?

i think the octopus is and he is noticeably redder today, could it be bothering him that i am always in the room? (the tank is in my bedroom)
