Well she's just arrived via Fed Ex overnight. Everybody Welcome my Briareus Shiva!!!
Woohoo! Pics or it didn't happen... jk.
She's pretty timid and not moving too much so she's in the shipped bag in a bucket. I'm acclimating her in the bag because it will fit into the tank better.
Just make sure you don't leave the bucket unattended for any amount of time. Wouldn't be too nice to come back to an empty bucket!
Welcome, Shiva! Congratulations, can't wait to read more about your new friend!
she's in the den i arranged for her now. I turned off the lights to give her some privacy/calm her down.
Welcome, Shiva! I'm just adding her to the List of Our Octopuses!
Welcome Shiva!!!!! Please keep up updated!!!
Will do. I have to order a new battery charger for my digital rebel so i can get more pics. I know it's very unsafe, but my bed is touching the whole right side of the tank. I just wanted to wake up with an octopus in my face (not on) and i got what i wished for this morning. It was slightly startling because she looks as if she's plotting her revenge... but she's out and about now. I'm sure she'll hit the den when i kick on my new lights. ( 2 175W MH & 2 130W PC)
Haha, easiest place to observe a nocturnal octopus from. That's funny.
It's occurred to me to sleep on the living room floor next to the tank- but my husband would rebel if I wanted to move the tank into the bedroom! I'm jealous!
Let's think about this for a minute. John wanted you to do something interesting in the way of dacor in the master bedroom and you have been wanting another tank ...
did you try feeding her yet?
I waved some krill around but she wasn't having any of it. Any one have any suggestions? I'm not too worried, I'm sure she won't starve herself to death.
Try live crabs and thawed frozen shrimp. Those seem to be the general favorites.
i'm usure if i got here to eat today. She took 2 pieces of krill form a stick and i found the serpents with one. I'm guessing she wasn't too fond of them. I'll get pics soon.
Ok So, I've ordered fiddler's and they're on their way. Here are some pics.
