    Inky does this strange behavior all night every night - @Thales said I shouldn't worry. This is not the cleaning sucker shedding behavior BTW.

    New to Cephs: Just got a Mercatoris

    Hi folks. My little guy is sitting in a fish trap in my main tank with hiding places and he had a crab for a midnight snack on his first night home. I am setting up a tank for him but he will stay in the fish trap until then. I click on the Mercatoris tag on this forum and only found 4 threads...

    [Octopus]: Bubble & Squeak (O. mercatoris)

    [Octopus]: Mama - O. mercatoris (?)

    I have had this one for 5 1/2 weeks now, it's well acclimated- if nothing else. I got it from Matt Andrews at Tom's Caribbean Tropicals, he had it labeled briareus or vulgaris. I waited this long to journal it because I was worried that it will turn out to be a brooding joubini- it reminds me...

    [Octopus]: Megamind - O Mercatoris(?) Hitchhiking Octopus

    Hey everyone I am attaching this here from another forum where I requested an ID on this fellow and was directed to this amazing forum.
