Finally got pics of him/her :D

Here is Octavius accepting and devouring a piece of shrimp:





And before anyone is like "you stole that name from another Tonmo member!" my friend and I made it up before I even saw that someone had named theirs that :P His full name is Octavius Aurellius Caesar. hehe.

I'm wondering about the reason why he's always chilling upside down. Maybe he doesn't like the substrate? I originally had a thick layer of crushed coral but later added a 10 pound bag of aragonite on top of it. Maybe even that is too coarse for him.

In the top and center pictures, what is the white mass on "his" right side?

That does look like pretty rough substrate and wouldn't be very comfortable - maybe you could cover it with very fine aragonite sand.

Young octos do sometimes hang upside down, but he should also be moving about on the sand.
