I've had my Octopus about 2 weeks ago and have been chatting about her in a different part of the forum. To catch up on the action you can refer to this. She has been shy since I stuck her in the RSM (36G). She stays in her den most of the time, but does come to the den entrance, and plays with the holes in the rock with her arms during the day or the night. With or without the Red Plexiglas on. She takes small tiny pieces of thawed shrimp on a skewer. (she ate 5 pieces yesterday I think her appetite is growing) But she refuses Live Shore Shrimp on a stick and she won't catch the last one running around the tank. (there were 2 but one came up missing so she may have snacked on that one) She refused a Fiddler on a stick the first 3 times I tried it so I gave up on skewering them. I didn't want to waste them if she might take to them later on. I was hoping if she became more familiar she might start coming outside more and I could toss one inside. I needed to remove the corals I had stuck in there because I didn't want to take any chances on them. So I thought I would feed her and keep her busy while I had my hands in the tank. I snapped a few photos today and short video @ 1pm of her finally taking a live fiddler! It took her a few tries because the hole she is in I think is too small for her to maneuver around in with a large piece of food.. I helped a little by using the skewer to keep it from crawling back outside and I think she stunned it be cause it then stopped trying to get away. Hence the cool video under the photos. Photos taken with my Olympus E-600 (getting better I hope). Video was taken with my iPhone 4 since my E-600 doesn't do Video. :( Notice the not so camera shy Shore Shore shrimp Well I hesitated to post this until I pulled out the pieces of fiddler after she finished her meal. I'm glad I waited. The fiddler molted in the tank. She didn't eat it like I thought she was doing when I walked away to give her some privacy while she ate. I still think their too big for her to eat. I'm gonna try once more when she's actually exploring the tank more. But I think their either too big or she can't get through the shell. Let me know your opinions as you can see the fiddler size and comparison from the photos and video.
