    What am I doing wrong?!

    4 years ago I had researched the care and keeping of Octopuses (specifically the bimac) and prepped a 54 gallon corner tank. After months of waiting for a bimac, I realized I wouldn't be able to get one and settled for the only available non-dwarf species, the exotic wonderpus. I thought it...

    Cuttlefish Eggs: What to do?

    Hey guys, I just order dwarf cuttle eggs from NY Aquatics. They came in today! I am very excited! The eggs are all in a bundle (probably 15 eggs?) with a few shriveled up eggs. Should I leave the eggs in this bundle? Or seperate them into seperate eggs? Also, should I remove all the shriveled eggs?

    dwarf octo w/ white eye "caps"

    Which dwarf octo has little white "caps" on it's eyes? Smooth, red, nocturnal- LFS doesn't know where it's from (You don't even know what OCEAN it's from???) doesn't sit with inverted arms like a merc, way too small for a joubini.
