    (quoted spammy post deleted by Monty, but I left your helpful response so it still counts toward your progress out of gelatinous-blob-o-pus rank)

    You may want to post this in the marketplace forum.

    Someone posted some spam, which I deleted, and I didn't want to leave it quoted in dreadhead's post, but I didn't want to delete dreadhead's post so I just edited it. Perhaps that's too confusing, and I should just delete followup posts to spam... but if I make all this disappear now, it will probably confuse people even more... so I guess I'll leave this here for a little while and delete it (and l8_2_rise's similar post) later if I remember. Sorry for the confusion, I'm having kind of a weird and stressful day.

    How long do they last before they die? Could they be over stressed. I had one octo that had obviously had a rough ride and it lasted 3 days my other octos did just fine in the exact same set up. Could be just bad luck but it's good to try and rule things out. I have also used that sand with no problems.
