I am in the process of setting up a tank for an octo. With the delicacy of them I really want to have everything ironed out in terms of care before it arrives. I would really like to ensure that I have a appropriate and reliable food source for the little guy (even already have it on had prior to it arriving). The main concern I have is with the random availability, you really don't have a realistic idea of species/size until it ends up at your tank. I have read a bit around the forum and have a decent idea of the varieties of food, but would like to see what would be a good "stock" food to have about as well as highly attractive foods for early acclimation. Is there a "rule of thumb" as to the size/amount to feed on a regular basis (most fish will over consume food if available). Are there foods that are species specific? Thanks.
