    My octopus laid eggs... and they just hatched! What do I do?!

    Hi All - I have a warm water indo-pacific octopus (that's all the LFS was able to tell me about species). About a week after I got it it disappeared into the back of the tank where it laid eggs. From everything I read, I was pretty bummed as I figured it was just going to wither away and die...

    Training octopus to eat frozen

    Hi All - Forgive me if there is a thread on this already. I couldn't find one. Brand new to this site and octopus keeping. I've got my first (a mimic) about two weeks ago. Been loving it. However, I can't seem to get him at all interested in eating non-live food. (Would like his diet to be a...

I've finally found time to post about what I've learned in keeping them, and hopefully it will help others who are looking at cuttlefish care! I'm working on research...

However I was able to film both Sepia bandensis and Metasepia pfefferi feeding, on a saltwater livebearer and shrimp respectively. I also did get...

The other one, however (that I call Chromia) is...

    Hi Tonmo We are two college students who have been lurking on this community for some time as we made preparation to get ourselves an octopus. We followed all the suggestions and have set up a good quality 90 gallon. A month and a half ago we purchased the octo from saltwaterfish, and have...

    Baby squid care

    So one of the local wholesalers managed to get their hands on a batch of squid eggs of a currently unknown species. My LFS bought some and I'll be going in tomorrow to check them out and offer the owner any advice I can. I'm familiar with keeping octopuses, having kept several, and have done...

    Getting Octopus to eat

    Hi all, I'm wondering if I could get some advice and/or reassurance. Afew months ago I had asked a LFS owner if he ever got octopuses in. He said rarely as they didn't ship very well. He called me a few days ago to say the Octopus I had wanted had arrived and looked to be healthy. I...
