    Congratulations, Debbie and Jetta!

    And some news for the rest of you - I'm going to be taking a few of the hatchlings and trying to raise them, too. So I'll be back in the octo business!

    ok i have a total of 23 that hatched outside of the tank :roll: all in containers,,16 more went to Alicia at 5th day, all are ok as well today and all are eating :D So a total of 39 was put into containers. God only knows how many hatched in the tank, I hand 8 clutches altogether and only two clutches were taken out, that were left for the taking..... Pictures will be up soon.

    Thanks to Nancy for coming over and getting her new 6 babies :notworth: ,,, Hope all goes well with them :) What an experience this has been :rainbow: One my whole family will never forget :)

    Have I named them yet - all six, who look exactly alike?? :D
    Fortunately Debbie gave each one a number on the top of their containers. I'm especially fond of number 17 and 21!
