Congratulations, now you have eggs. When I heard how much Jetta was eating, I suspected as much. You'll probably have to give her food in her den or right in front of it, since, if she follows the pattern of the others, she won't come out much.
What are your plans - I assume you're going to try to raise some of the hatchlings?
Nancy, yes i am going to try and raise them I have talked with Alicia from 5thday and she is going to have live mysid shrimp , amphs and copes. flown in. She is also going to help with this so if i do have some grow up a bit we can sell them ok this is so excited snow and octo eggs on the same day What a great Valentines Day
Ahhh Colin,,, I have been patiently waiting your arrival and response!!!!
To tell you the truth Im totally nervous
I went to the marine center(local marine fish store) were i get all of my maint. stuff for my tank. They could not believe i had such a larger oct, seems how they only deal with bimacs. So , they the entire staff came to my house Sat night at 730pm to see Jetta. They could not believe their eyes. The brought me 100 betta cups with lids for free just to help out 8) way cool... I counted the eggs this morning closely and she has about 160 or so,, there are about 8 clutches in the cave. I never even saw her coming at me, she caught me off guard as I was pulling my hand out of the tank, she lunged very fast and i was not quick enough, she got me she wrapped herself almost all the way up to my elbow and gave me a good shake, then let go
ok ok she scared the piss out of me... then i let her be, thismornign she has completey enclosed the den excepte for a small opening I guess she showed me whos boss
