June 10 - Jan 20 (7 Months) I missed out the last time KPAquatics had a hummelincki because of an unreceived email, THIS time I got the notice He was quite active during acclimation and escaped into the sink when I initially opened the jar (Philipp later told me that he was quite a challenge to get INTO the jar on the boat). If I had to leave the sink for any reason, I had to clamp the plastic bag shut. Once he settled down and accepted a cracked blue crab claw arm, he was better behaved. He did not stay hidden for more than a few minutes once placed in the tank and explored his new home until lights out. He seemed particularly puzzled by the glass side of the tank and experimented going up and down the side and then tentatively reaching for the live rock (video to follow). I have noticed odd wall walking with this species in the past and they often appear to have to acclimate to the way their suckers interact with the glass, resulting in a jerky motion as if some of the suckers don't release timely. This fella was not so much walking with hesitation as appearing to trying to figure it out. Much of the time he would walk upside down (the eyes NOT being aligned with the horizon). His experiment with how to get to the live rock was somewhat comical. If I approached the tank and rubbed my finger on the glass, he would venture toward me, sometimes coming fully to the front. He was not interested in raw shrimp shish kabob but did inspect the shrimp on a stick I touched to his sucker. Hopefully he will eat shrimp later but there are a couple of small live crabs in the tank and I have more blue crab frozen.
