    Well, we noticed she had died this morning. Never got attached as she was quite the loner and we only had about 2 weeks with her before she stopped eating and went into her guarding egg mode. She had a spot inside a Lava Rock so we never did confirm if there were eggs or not and did not notice any larva swimming like in the past. Someone had started a thread, are octopuses worth it...well....absolutely yes. Even though we only had her for about 2 months, she had attitude, and this was probably the first really tiny dwarf we had. I still think she was one of the ones that always lives in abandon shells. Every octopus I have had is sooo different that you never know what kind of an experience you will have with them. Even though I only had her 2 months, it was well worth it!

    Im so sorry for the loss, but at least the next time you ever get a dwarf without intending to, you'll know right away if it its a dwarf again and make the best of the experience.
