Somehow yet again, the date has passed by...I see behavior changes in Gimpy. She...and as you know I always refer to my octos as he's unless I have deffinate denning behavior...Well, seems Gimpy has taken up residence back in the front of the tank under a huge rock. She is pulling shells in, excavating sand out, and her behavior has changed from an outgoing always stalking her food source (me) to becoming very reclusive. She is still eating, but rarely leaves her new den. I've also noticed her feeding has slowed down. She was a verocious feeder, looking daily to now one crab and she's back in her den for at least 24 hours and then when she emerges, she rarely leave the front of her den.
