My octo used to love fiddlers and crayfish. He wouldn't touch the red crabs, but I think it was a matter of preference. Also, the red crabs do seem to last longer in the saltwater.

Hmmm, you are all making me want to do the water changes I have been putting off and get my tank ready for a new bimac. I still have a credit from fishsupply.com for one.

Hey all:

I found that my LFS carries both ghost shrimp and crayfish. (but very rarely fiddlers but he's going to try to get me some) I gave Tralfaz 5 ghost shrimp last night and today I can't find any of them. Of course they may be hiding. I'm going to wait until the next shipmet of crayfish since the ones in the LFS all seem to be a bit big for Tralfaz. Some of them were almost twice his size.

I watched him stalking a camel shrimp today. Quite pathetic :roll: everytime he would lunge the shrimp easily evaded him. Then it would tap him on the head with its feelers. I'm sure it was doing this to keep track of him but it looked like it was mocking him, you know hitting him on the head and saying "you ain't so tough". Geez, I hope Tralfaz perfects his hunting technique soon, this is getting embaressing. :oops:

Hi George,

It's taken Ollie some time to learn how to catch shrimp. Even after I had salt-water shrimp in the tank, I added some ghost shrimp again so he had something to catch easily while he was learning. He came with the ability to catch and eat crabs and snails. Everything else has been a learning experience, even ghost shrimp.

I've noticed that our little bimacs eat different things. You might try fresh (never frozen) scallop - just buy one. (If fact, when you say you have a baby octopus to feed, sometimes you get things for free!) Ollie really likes this, and I give him a just a small piece each day.
