    Have been worried that my octopus has not been eating.I have had him for nearly a week and despite havin feeder crabs in the tank he has refused to eat.Out of desperation I offered him 1/2 a frozen king prawn...and he nearly ripped my hand off for it:shock: .....should I continue to offer him crabs or just stick to frozen??

    Feed him whatever he will eat. Variety is best!

    Have you checked your water parameters?

    He wants shrimp, just keep giving him shrimp! Do you have a source for live shrimp? Some octopus have very specific preferences.
