My new octopus came today and at first I wondered if O. briareus is found in the Pacific. As I was acclimating him to the tank he was very active. Arm to mantle ratio is about 4:1 or 5:1 and there are no rings around his eyes or suckers. When I let him free he went right for the live rock and after a while attached himself to the glass in the back of the tank just like Gus used to and he was an abdopus. I went and bought some small hermit crabs and let them loose close to him. He did not shy away. I will try to feed him some shrimp tonight.
