Cool! I like the red eyes, and those are some LONG arms!
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!
Hah..when I was really young, I named one of our Kois in the backyard fluffy!
ahhh, my problem with "Fluffy" becomes obvious, young I cannot claim.
admitably young (16) :P when i first asked my parents about keeping an octopus they went on about how furry/fluffy pets were the best pets so i couldn't resist
Love your new avitar! With explanation, I have decided I like the name too
Cute octo! Any idea what species? Looks like maybe O. Rubescens to me.
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.
Well, maybe Fluffy is not so Strange for an octo after all:
I like the name and your reasoning is awesome!!! He's very cute! My octos have always had very different names especially if my sons or daughter get into the naming.
the seller said he was a briareus. i bought him off ebay from Florida.
Looks pretty green to me. I believe he is Briareus.
iv noticed that one of his eyes sticks out more than the other and the other is whiter it can still change color though. is their something wrong here?
Hmmm, I would pay close attention to it over the next several days.
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)
How long was your tank up and running before you added the octopus?
