well yesterday i got in two octopus. one is a briarius and the other i think was a vulgaris. while the vulgaris was acclimating it was fine and trying to crawl out the bucket etc. as soon as it hit the water in the tank it went to the bottom curled up its tenticals and let out a super thick ink that just clotted around its intake. needless to say he died. now the briarius on the other hand did fine through acclimation and went in the tank and started crawling around in the back and i havent seen it since. i assume its alive since i dont see a body anywhere. i have no clue what caused the first one to die but hopefully this second one will be fine. anyway ill keep yall updated and i think im gonna name him/her captain ahab due to the fact that its missing half a leg.
