I'm proud to say that Pig is 4 weeks old (as of yesterday) and eating like a pig. (He's becoming as messy as one also.) He's grown quite a bit and will now catch food right in front of my very eyes. I've tried feeding frozen and hand feeding but have not had any luck yet.

:octopus: I'll post photos just as soon as I get some! :octopus:

Alicia, this is wonderful news! Glad Pig is doing so well and it's quite an accomplishment to mark his four week birthday! Looking forward to the pics!

I have still seen no sign of any octo in my tank, so I'm 99% sure that none survived.

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement!

Latest News: As some of you already know I've been calling Octopus #2 (for lack of a better name) "Pig". It hasn't really been a decided name, just what I call the little guy for how much he eats.

Today my mother decided on a permanent name. His name is now Imahogg. Really, it sounds kinda catchy when said fast. As you will see if broken down his name is "I'm a hog". I think my mother got tired of hearing the harsh "Pig" nickname. :biggrin2:

Posting pictures soon...
