    From Massive Sci: Contrary to octopuses, which only have arms, squid have both arms and tentacles. You can distinguish between the two by looking at the tips: ... Continue reading...

    That’s good thinking! My bimac would soak me and attack anything I put in tank!! He would climb out tank in an instant. One night I was careless and left top open for a couple of minutes next thing I know I heard gasping noises and sure enough he...

    I totally agree with that! A lot has to do with which species they are, but my upstairs octopus tank is near the window, and they usually end up pretty social!

    In order to clean the tank anymore, it takes two people. John usually does all the work, while I use a scrub brush for playing with/ distracting Anya. 🤣Otherwise, she tries to steal the siphon and generally interferes with our progress. Here are...

    Sedna has a good point here, I wonder if there is a correlation to the amount of daylight the tank gets and the amount of activity the animal exhibits? Could be a cool thing to experiment with.

    Hank is doing well. She is really feisty. An aggressive eater and she tried to bite my boyfriend but we just can't get enough of her personality. We sometimes catch her at the top of her tank watching tv or seeming to be looking at what's going...

    Good Morning All, I have some very sad and unfortunate news. When we woke up this morning, we saw our male Caribbean Reef Octopus, Turq, had passed away and we are trying to find out why. One thing we had noticed is when we would have the wave...

    Anya is turning in to something of a beast! She really likes to play with human hands, but we have had to establish some firm rules- there needs to be two people and at least three hands for play time!!! She will try to envelop hands- which we...

    I take so many photos, but forget to take the time to upload them! Anja continues to do well. She is active in the afternoons and evenings and continues to love water changes and playtime.
