Ahhhhhh! Disaster!

Crevalle, I finally found my baby late this afternoon. He's hiding out under the ledge of a big rock. There is also an empty crab shell there too! So glad to here yours is doing ok. Does anyone know how many little hermits I should feed it a day? :?:

Spring :smile:
There really is no standard on how much to feed an octo, It also depends on the size of the octo. I fed my cephs 4 1 inch shrimps a day when it was about 2 inch mantle length.
Not yet Tony, But I'll get around to it soon. Thanks for reminding me. :smile:

It is cool to be able to take a picture of an octo, isn't it? Marine life fascinates me so much. I'd love to be able to go diving or snorkling and see one in the wild. It'll never happen though, :frown: I'm not a very strong swimmer. :oops: I'll just have to be satisfied with having my tanks here at home.

Spring :smile:
I'm really glad to hear that both baby bimacs seem to be doing OK. Looking forward to hearing much more about both of them. Nice pic, too.

One of the reasons we ask you to enter your tank and octo in the database is so we have some information on hand when you ask questions, now and in the future.

So, do these little guys have names yet?

Thanks Nancy and Carol, No name yet. I'm kind of waiting to see what it's personality is like before I name mine. It's staying hid a lot. Is there anything I can do to encourage it to come out in the open? Maybe a lego or something to play with? Do they play with toys this young or is that something that developes later?

BOE, Those are some great pictures you linked to. What a lucky guy that fellow is. Thanks.
