It's probably not a big deal, but im just concerned a bit if its normal. The octopus I recieved 2 days ago from Toms Caribbean is still not eating. It hasen't eaten since it arrived. The first day it came I put in 3 small crabs..about 2 cm. long in the tank, but they havent disappeared yet. I removed them because alls they did was bother the octopus. Since they didn't satisfy it, I bought raw shrimp...a whole pound of it. After trying to give it to it once I got home, it pushed the shrimps away. I even peeled the shrimp, but still no luck. I also cut off peices so its extra small bits, but it wont eat it. Their's times when it'll sucker one of its arms on the shrimp, but it wont eat it...just hang on to it for 15 minutes. I would do what some of you guys do and just leave food in their so it can eat when it's ready but I can't risk letting the ammonia/nitrites kick in cuz I just got it stabled back to perfection. Should I take a risk and leave a peice of shrimp in there for a few hours or would that be a bad idea? What food should I try next? The fact that its not accepting shrimp nor crabs is odd enough. It could be picky of course, but im trying to think of other foods I can try. Right now, my local seafood market only has lobster and crayfish live. Lobster wouldn't be an option now because it's too big. Let me know what you guys think if anyone has suggestions or advice. The water quality is perfect and the octopus hasen't seemed stressed at all...it just won't eat.
