Hello all, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for me. I recently was able to purchase an octo (not sure of species, I need to take a picture and post it in the ID forum). I received him 3/13 from Liveaquaria.com and he is doing very well. He is fun to watch from outside the classroom (I am a college student wanting to do a training experiment with him, so he is in a lab). Unfortunately, he is very shy and has inked when my sister approached him and he was not aware of her before then. Fortunately the tank has a very powerful filter and he did not ink too much, but still this shyness worries me, especially since I want to be able to train him to pick the correct color or word from a jar to receive food. Does anyone have suggestions on how to best acclimate him to humans and allow him to become less scared? The classroom is not used that much, only for meetings about four times a month and by me and my friends. I recently added chromis, which seems to have helped, but only a little. He definitely has character, but he seems too afraid to show it to us directly. Thanks for any suggestions you have.
