    Latest updating of my Common Octopus

    I noticed Oct Paul is an vulgaris too ? They look the same. During the 30 days my oct have gained about 20% on weight. He really eats a lot.Even 13 crabs in 2 days once. As the system of my tank is not strong enough. NO3 and PO4 may become a problem.

    [Octopus]: LittleBit - O. vulgaris

    I posted an ID request on this little guy thinking an odd looking O.briareus or a very long armed O.vulgaris from the initial preshipment photos. This is definitely not a species I have kept but I am still in a quandry as to what it might be. O. defilippi fits the long arm to mantle ratio and...

    Octopus ??? (yet to be named)

    As may already know, I purchased what I believe is an Octopus Vulgaris a few days ago. While I will not keep a very detailed journal on this guy, I will still post things from time to time.

    Penelope - O.Vulgaris

    I pulled my remaining Stone crab traps, and came up with no octopuses so I broke down and got my next O.Briareus from Tom. :sagrin: But it appears I got a Hummelincki instead! WooHoo! Acclimation was fast as the octopus was only in route for about an hour, and the parameters of the water in...
